A powerful metaphor about art and work
Gustavo Javier Aquino | Buenos Aires | 07/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The film begin with the backstage of a concert and you can see that people necessary but invisible. Later come the stars, the players and the director. All of them are workers, all of them are making art. Here you realize that when Whistler said ART HAPPENS, it's only part of the tuth, art is work, it doesn't just happen.
It's not a bonus track, finally you can enjoy a magnificent Mehta's version of the Ravel's classic.
From time to time is hard to agree with the Academy, but in this case, when Bolero won the Oscar, there's no reason to disagree."
The Bolero, In Search of Cezanne
Marionette Simon | Birmingham, AL | 04/24/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bolero is a moving, motivational documentary of Ravel's Bolero with Zupin Mehta, conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It begins with the placing of chairs for the orchestra and interviews with the musicians as they tune their instruments, continues with rehearsals and concludes with a stellar performance by the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra. Breathtaking. Every school band and orchestra should own a copy of this demonstration of teamwork by observing a world-renowned conducter with a world-class orchestra."

"I wondered if my memory of this film would proved disappointing after so many years. I first saw this in a Motion Picture as Art class and was so excited to see it finally on DVD. It is amazing and exciting. My heart still pounds watching Zubin Mehta conduct! He is breathtaking! This is a gem in the film world. It is so much more than a documentary of an orchestra. This is a work of art on film"
