I personally found it pretentious and not very enjoyable. I guess, as weird as this sounds, do not enjoy 'loud sounds' like the footage in NYC, with walking people, building sounds, Evelyn Glennie whacking on drums and other instruments. She is very inspirational and admirable though and I did like the bit when she was in Japan in a bar with the piano. What I enjoyed the most was the silence at the Zen garden
Inspired and inspiring. If rhythm or musical ingenuity are any interest to you, you'll find quite a bit to enjoy in this. Don't expect too conventional of a documentary, however. Evelyn Glennie is an artist very in-tune with her art. Speaking of which, this makes a wonderful companion piece to Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time (2001).
The impact and resonance of sound, both physically and emotionally, is something everyone can relate to. Evelyn Glennie is a very admirable person. While the aural aspects of this documentary trump its visuals, it should be noted that there is still a lot of great footage.
A perfect, poetic example of a documentary that shows rather than tells. Or rather, shares an experience, and with applied cinematography. Pure and profound. Completely satisfies my practically autistic love of sound.
