Dir: Stéphanie Argerich | France / Switzerland | 2012 | 100 mins | French w/Eng Subtitles
This fascinating documentary investigates world-renowned pianists Martha Argerich and Stephen Kovacevich, two giants of classical music, and is directed by their daughter Stéphanie, now in her thirties and a mother herself. A warm, intimate and often funny family portrait that questions the relationship between a mother who is a quasi “goddess”, and a very private person, and her three daughters; Stéphanie also uses the film to attempt to reconnect with her rather estranged father, and explores with immense subtlety the joys and difficulties of combining motherhood with an artistic career.
“A masterpiece of intimacy and restraint” Norman Lebrecht, Arts Journal
