Robertas Verba Retrospective  

All movies

Maestro Junior

This film is a portrait of composer Giedrius Kuprevičius. We see him playing and talking with a young audience, and also with this father, well-known composer Viktoras Kuprevičius. As film critic Saulius Macaitis once said, that was rather risky to make a film consisting mostly out of portraits, however when such a considerate and observant film portraitist as Robertas Verba meets with a versatile and well-rounded personality like Kuprevičius, you realize that “to observe a person who nearly throughout the film does not leave the frame is, indeed, very interesting. The musician captures the audience’s attention, and the gamut of his moods charges them with a rush of emotions.”
