5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film, Dec 16 2013
This is an excellent documentary by the celebrated film maker John Bridcut about the final years of Ben Britten's life, focusing on his composition of Death in Venice and his declining health. It is a wonderfully uplifting and moving film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie - but packaged so as not to do it justice, Aug. 20 2002
This is a superb film - very atmospheric, and captures Istanbul perfectly. The description of the winds is spot on. It's a film about self discovery and getting balance in life (in the same way that Local Hero was) and about beoming entraced by an idea, and a different approach to life.
It is not a 'gay' movie at all, despite the cover and the hype. Ok there is an element (without giving the story away), but it is a sensitive and clever film exploring a group of people.
It's not a 'romp' movie. Anyone who buys it for watching alone for self comfort will be hugely disappointed. Anyone who buys it for a great story and tremendous atmoshere will have an excellent evening.
