Homage to Chagall

"A demanding but richly rewarding study of this magnificent artist, who lived and worked in France. A poet and mystic as well as painter, Chagall was a fascinating personality. Here, haunting shots of his work are juxtaposed with readings of the artist's own words by actors Mason and Wiseman. What emerges from Rasky's tribute is a profound portrait of a bona-fide genius, whose goal was to portray the many shades and facets of love."
Not a bad film... just a bad print

"The movie was pretty good, with lots of
shots of some of Chagall's most lovely pieces. But the
DVD was very blurry and the colors were VERY faded throughout, making
us feel like we were watching a VHS tape that had been dubbed
from another VHS tape which had been dubbed from another... and another.
One other complaint was the painfully poor dubbing over Chagall's
voice during the Q&A session. It was distracting and amateurish.
thing worse than the dubbing was watching Chagall's wife trying to translate what he was saying into English. She clearly had
no talent for translating, and admitted it. Why didn't the director use subtitles?
