Surprisingly good, do try
16 October 2019 | by stephen-624See all my reviews

If you're fascinated by classical piano, or indeed manipulative mothers, this is a must watch. Even if you're not, it has surprising resonance.

The Australian Geoffrey Tozer was a world-level pianist (no, seriously) who flickered out early, but resurged under the patronage of Australian PM Paul Keating. When it all goes pear shaped once again, the suspects are variously too much patronage, the mother's death, the agent's death, or the end of the affair.

Resisting the urge to turn all this into white-hats and black-hats, director Janine Hosking achieves something better, a compact and original doco about the ominous and unlikely places from which great art arises.
