The Silence Before Bach

Die Stille vor Bach

Directed by Pere Portabella
Spain, 2007


Blending historical reconstruction with very loosely linked ‘dramatic’ scenes and documentary sequences, the film constitutes a playful, painterly sequence of variations on the argument that Johann Sebastian changed the way the world hears thanks to his extraordinary ear for harmony.
