Storyline

There is only one Yul Brynner. No other actor had his looks, his range of talents, his energy, and his capacity to draw others into the spell of his charm. A true sophisticate of deliberately mysterious origins, Yul Brynner was at home in a wide variety of languages and social environments.

more than a portrait
31 March 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Fascinating is the manner to feel this large puzzle of discover and definition of a life and career like a sort of exploration of a far land. The film is about his unique force of seduction and about roles, about impressions and about gestures defining him and that is its basic virtue - the documentary gives more than the map of a biography but a sort of man defining part of an exotic, sofisticated, maybe eccentric character. Sure, for many, Yul Brynner is not exactly the great actor , many roles are perceived as superficials and results of compromises but the main thing, real significant about him remains the authentic charisma. And the documentary knows working with that.
