Plot
The sound of genius.

Internationally renowned pianist Glenn Gould had all the marks of genius -- blinding talent, a craving for perfection and absolute bullheadedness. In Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, director Francois Girard goes directly to the center of Gould's ideas, his passions and his music. Using thirty-two elegantly constructed vignettes, which span Gould's life from age four until his untimely death at age fifty, the film achieves the rare balance between play and conceptual rigor. Each of the thirty-two selections dramatizes a variation on the theme of Glenn Gould, depicting the many diverse aspects of his life -- from artist to financier, humorist to nature-lover, recluse to iconoclast -- and the result is a powerful impressionistic mosaic of genius.
