Documentary

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
