This intimate and enchanting documentary of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman takes us from the first years of the boy born to non-musical Polish Immigrants in pre-Israel Tel Aviv, to Julliard in New York and then to the great stages of concert music. The movie also delves into Perlman’s daily physical struggles resulting from the polio he caught as a child. Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life. From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, and Mozart to making soup for pal Alan Alda, this feel good film is a portrait of a maestro and a real mensch.
