Thirty two short films about Glenn Gould

"As the title suggests, this dramatised documentary about the eccentric Canadian pianist Glenn Gould is broken up into thirty-two short films (mirroring the thirty-two part structure of Bach's 'Goldberg Variations', the recording that Gould made famous), each giving us an insight into some aspect of Gould's life and career. Out of respect for the music, lead actor Colm Feore is never seen playing the piano, merely reacting to Gould's own recordings, which are extensively featured"--Internet movie database summary by Sean Gallagher, August 4, 2003.

  • "Internationally renowned pianist Glenn Gould had all the marks of genius - blinding talent, a craving for perfection and absolute bullheadedness. In Thirty two short films about Glenn Gould, director François Girard goes directly to the center of Gould's ideas, his passions and his music. Using thirty-two elegantly constructed vignettes, which span Gould's life from age four until his untimely death at age fifty, the film achieves the rare balance between play and conceptual rigor. Each of the thirty-two selections dramatizes a variation on the theme of Glenn Gould, depicting the many diverse aspects of his life-from artist to financier, humorist to nature-lover, recluse to iconoclast - and the result is a powerful impressionistic mosaic of genius. Thirty two short films about Glenn Gould opened in 1993 and won four Genie Awards by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, including Best Picture and Best Director, as well as a special citation at the 1993 Toronto Film Festival."

  • "Glenn Gould est né en 1932 à Toronto. Dès l'âge de 3 ans, il manifeste des dons musicaux hors du commun, si bien que 20 ans plus tard, il devient l'un des plus grands pianistes de son époque. Acclamé partout à travers le monde, Gould décide pourtant de se retirer et de donner son dernier concert en 1964, à Los Angeles. Pour cet artiste en quête d'absolu, seul le studio permet de parvenir à une exécution parfaite. Il consacre alors le reste de sa carrière à l'enregistrement de ses mémorables interprétations."
