Thirty two short films about Glenn Gould by François Girard( visu )
17 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and French and held by 625 libraries worldwide
This dramatised documentary about the eccentric Canadian pianist Glenn Gould is broken up into thirty-two short films (mirroring the thirty-two part structure of Bach's "Goldberg Variations", the recording that Gould made famous), each giving us an insight into some aspect of Gould's life and career. Out of respect for the music, lead actor Colm Feore is never seen playing the piano, merely reacting to Gould's own recordings, which are extensively featured. -- [by M. Brooke, from IMDB web site]
