Our take

Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay, Music rewrites the script for narrative cinema with its poetic inclinations and mythic proportions. Casting Oedipus into the chaos of modern Europe, Angela Schanelec finds solace in swimming, song, and intimate bonds in this elliptically beautiful film.
