Critic Reviews for Seymour: An Introduction
The great joy of the film, whether you know piano or not, is watching Bernstein teach.
Hawke's cinematic etude may not unlock all the mysteries of music, but "Seymour: An Introduction" is universal enough to be understood by a bananafish.
Like a touching master class on living correctly, listening to the charming Bernstein will have you changing keys.
Coming off of his superb one-two performances for Richard Linklater in Before Midnight and Boyhood, Hawke continues to work at a creative high level. He demonstrates a rapport and openness with his subject that proves exceptionally affecting.
Whether or not Hawke got any answers to his questions about the purpose of being artist, seeking them under the guidance of a teacher like Bernstein resulted in this work of art.
Audience Reviews for Seymour: An Introduction
Allows a look into the life of a concert pianist turned instructor who shares the beauty of music intertwined with love of life. Interesting for those who love music- maybe not so much for those who don't.
'The most important thing that music teachers can do for their pupils is to inspire an emotional reaction, not just for the music, but more importantly, for life.'
A heart warming tale of a genius who couldn't get over his fear of playing before crowds to make it a career. Becoming a teacher that inspired more than music students, Seymour is a man that you are glad to get to know.
