Critic Reviews for Wagner & Me
Ultimately, the music that Fry first heard as a child "on my father's gramophone" comes first for him, and much of the pleasure of "Wagner & Me" is that Fry lets us see how art transforms him.
The passion that Fry and company feel for Wagner's work keeps them from the measured appraisal this film needs. They hear him, but they don't see him.
In addition to the magnificent music, the movie takes its rumpled charm from Fry's unfeigned fanboy manner.
The director, Patrick McGrady, gracefully alternates interviews and biographical passages with stirring lyrical musical sequences.
Even those impervious to Wagner's music will find it difficult to resist Fry's charm.
