  • richmondhill's rating of the film Elgar

    A well balanced series of slightly quirky vignettes made within the comfy strictures of narrated documentary. Although, straight-forward enough and reasonably informative about the subject matter, there are some glorious visual compositions and counterpoints to the music that testify to the creative powerhouse at work. Nicely judged and probably all the better for restraint (and constraints) shown.
