2018, Canada / Israel, 90 min

One of the most celebrated musicians of our time, Israeli-American violinist Itzhak Perlman shines in Alison Chernick’s engaging portrait of the gregarious master at home in New York, and on tour in Israel. It has been said that Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance (violinmaker Amnon Weinstein calls it “praying with the violin”) to evoke the struggles of real life: before the classical superstar came the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent and self-deprecating, his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly with Toby, his devoted wife of 50 years.

Reviews

A love story on so many levels – Perlman’s love of music, of the violin, of life itself!
