“It has a story, a point of view, a humanistic approach and a director, who is also the cameraman and who has the skills to catch magical moments as they happen in life. A decade ago the director made ”Siberian Lesson” and now he goes to Argentina with (his family) the same teacher and her two kids…”
A text quote from the review I made in May 2011 about ”The Argentinian Lesson”, one of the most beautiful documentaries from the last years.
Now the two films (from Siberia and Argentina) have been released as one entitled ”Two Lessons”, in New York in the cinema founded by Albert Maysles. This deserves a big BRAVO and links to reviews from the US, including one very well written from New York Times. The question that comes to my mind is simple – why don’t we/you do the same in other cities and festivals?
