Thirty-two Short Films About Glenn Gould

New 4K restoration! A collection of vignettes highlighting different aspects of the life, work, and character of the acclaimed Canadian classical pianist.

In this episodic fusion of documentary and biographical drama, director François Girard explores the life of 20th-century pianist Glenn Gould through a series of brief fictional reenactments and real interviews with those who knew the musician. After distinguishing himself as a prodigy at a very young age, the enigmatic Gould (Colm Feore) grows up to dissect the accepted rules of musical theory, and eventually refuses to perform before an audience. He also becomes addicted to prescription pills.

"A sly, quick-witted meditation on a character always likely to elude our grasp." - New Yorker

"If only more filmmakers would take the fragmented, kaleidoscopic approach of Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, which captures the essence of the famed pianist (and radio broadcaster) by honoring his unruliness." - AV Club

"An assured melange of dramatic re-creation, archival material and interviews, it is a uniquely entertaining venture." - Variety
