COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

En suivant le compositeur dans ses recherches ornithologiques, dans sa classe du conservatoire de Paris ou devant son orgue de l'église de la Trinité, le film évoque l'œuvre d'Olivier Messiaen, l'un des artistes majeurs du 20e siècle. Il rappelle les trois mobiles autour desquels il a bâti tout son travail : la foi catholique, l'amour de la nature et des oiseaux et la relation entre la couleur et les sons.

This film is more than a documentary: the authors wanted to follow the traces of the artist all along his life as well as his different sources of inspiration. Two of his major activities are observed: his position as organist at the Trinité Church where sometimes he interpreted the classical repertory, sometimes he engaged in improvisations which were very popular among music enthusiasts; his courses at the Conservatory where a fascinating sequence shows us the master studying with his students the opening of Pelléas et Mélisande, as well as the influence of Debussy on modern musicians.
