  • The material covered in this homage is fascinating but the end product could, unless you're already a huge fan, put you off Britten for life.

  • Unlikely to bring the composer to new audiences, but music lovers will find it illuminating and evocative ...

  • Promising in theory, but clunky writing and direction in the boyhood flashbacks combines with seemingly arbitrary time-shifts to make this a turgid viewing experience.

    May 21, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's compiled with obvious affection and director Tony Britten (no relation) scores coups whenever he sets his camera in front of a choir, soloist or string quartet and lets the music sing and soar for itself.

    Sep 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The purest, most sincere fan letter ever written.

    May 23, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Successful in its elucidation of the composer's music style and personal politics, but the tone fluctuates far too often and some of the actors aren't quite up to scratch.
