(Also in Berlin Film Festival — Forum.) Original title: Saluzzi, ensayo para bandoneon y tres hermanos. Running time: 68 MIN.

In this carefully conceived and lensed docu about world-famous Argentine bandoneon player and composer Saluzzi, debuting director Daniel Rosenfeld attempts to reveal something about the creative process while tracing Saluzzi’s footsteps from concert tours in Italy back to northeast Argentina where he grew up. Obscure as Saluzzi and the bandoneon (a kind of accordion) are to most viewers, the film becomes much more universal when it explores how he composes a piece of music and the obsessiveness of the creative process. Film could find a welcome on serious pubcasters with musical slots.

Two different shooting styles distinguish Saluzzi’s concert in Venice (first half of film is in B&W) and his return to his birthplace, Salta (in color). Back home, playing sophisticated music with his two brothers or local tunes in his dirt-poor village while housewives and gauchos dance in the background, he cuts an odd figure. Overall tone of the docu is mysteriously intriguing.
