Has anybody seen this film? Is it good? What is it like? What is the meaning of life?
I’m gonna pick it up today, just wondered if anyone had any useful thoughts.
This films is what documentary should be. One of the greatest documentaries on art (or any subject, really) of all time.
I knew that I wanted to see his, but now, after hearing these comments, I really want to see it! Looks great!
Haha, I own it!!!!!!!!! MWAHAHAHA!!!!!!
DARN YOU, ROCKY!!!!
I watched this. What an amazing film.
It’s very good….but I have a question for those who are familiar with the work. I was on another forum and I know that this very hot with some people but the film is called “Antonio Gaudi” but there are those who say it’s Antoni and Antonio is wrong.
He created various works in Spain and of course Barcelona and yes, he’s Catalan but I notice there are some who will purely get riled up with this topic. Granted, the film doesn’t focus on his life, so I have no idea how his feeling was towards Spain. I’ve heard he didn’t want to learn Spanish but curious for those who lived their, was Antoni Gaudi’s life a hotly discussed topic over there?
utterly sumptuous, like a drug, like a hot tub, my eyes roll back just thinking about it.
Me too Tim!
its not saying anything profound saying toru takemitsu is awesome but toru takemitsu is awesome.
Hi, I haven’t seen that film but all his work.
Gaudí was a deeply religious man, who lived poorly because of his autenticity and principles. No one in Spain or abroad loved his work until much time after he died.
He was a Van Gogh in architechture, in my personal opinion.
He died crashed by a train while he was walking through a street in Barcelone and because he was confounded by a poor man, no one took him to the Hospital until it was too late for him.
But he had some mecenas that allowed him to express his art, so human and full of natural sensibility and armony that I doubt It can be superated.
Its not about big work, but what quality in his work¡¡¡¡. Just to mention The Pedrera is really a miracle that it exists.
