A powerful metaphor about art and work July 28 2008
By Gustavo Javier Aquino - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The film begin with the backstage of a concert and you can see that people necessary but invisible. Later come the stars, the players and the director. All of them are workers, all of them are making art. Here you realize that when Whistler said ART HAPPENS, it's only part of the tuth, art is work, it doesn't just happen.
It's not a bonus track, finally you can enjoy a magnificent Mehta's version of the Ravel's classic.
From time to time is hard to agree with the Academy, but in this case, when Bolero won the Oscar, there's no reason to disagree.

The Bolero, In Search of Cezanne April 24 2009
By Marionette Simon - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Bolero is a moving, motivational documentary of Ravel's Bolero with Zupin Mehta, conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It begins with the placing of chairs for the orchestra and interviews with the musicians as they tune their instruments, continues with rehearsals and concludes with a stellar performance by the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra. Breathtaking. Every school band and orchestra should own a copy of this demonstration of teamwork by observing a world-renowned conducter with a world-class orchestra.

The Bolero Nov. 5 2007
By C. E. Kilpeck Fortune - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I wondered if my memory of this film would proved disappointing after so many years. I first saw this in a Motion Picture as Art class and was so excited to see it finally on DVD. It is amazing and exciting. My heart still pounds watching Zubin Mehta conduct! He is breathtaking! This is a gem in the film world. It is so much more than a documentary of an orchestra. This is a work of art on film

Iconic Feb. 3 2010
By Gary Gechlik - Published on
Format: DVD
This film is totally over the top. First off, it has been greatly imitated. Second, Zubin expresses his deep "passion" for the music, while the members of the orchestra play it dead pan. There is one great scene where a young violinist nearly rolls his eyes. The haircuts and clothes are absolutely terrific. What is great, is some of the players really try to play up their excitement, and the other members of the orchestra play it as it is.

The ending is really iconic. Zubin is practically dancing to the music near the end, and for the very end, he spins around, and the music stops, the picture goes black! This is the orchestral style you wanted to see when you were ten. Especially the cut scenes between Zubin, the drum, the tuba, and the light behind him.
Zubin Mehta Really Gets Things Rolling ! May 21 2014
By Scott Houston - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw The Bolero on public television back in the mid `70`s and have been intrigued with it ever since. Later I used to take it out of the library on 16mm film (they would loan the projector too). It then showed up on VHS tape as an "educational aid" costing hundreds of dollars !! (inexplicable). Finally, years later, I was gratified to find it on DVD. It`s still a good close up look at an orchestra and it`s conductor and how things come together. This combined with a favorite piece of music make for repeated satisfying viewings. My only complaint is that at the end in the original film still photos of the soloists were shown and their instrument was indentified in print next to the photo. On the DVD there is simply a list of the players and what instument they played.
