++ Film review from Toronto's NOW ++

"You might not expect a documentary about 19th-century German composer Richard Wagner to borrow techniques from modern espionage films, graphic novels and 1950s melodrama. But Ralf Pleger’s marvellous film – timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth this year – does all of those things and still adds up to a respectful and informative portrait. (…) A must for classical music fans and an entertaining intro for Wagner neophytes."
