Jonathan Woolf
MusicWeb International, December 2011

Naturally the traditional arc of such a life is mirrored here. Birth into poverty, relentless practice, a semi-tyrannical father, an escape into luxury, and the comforts of debauchery, followed by over-ambition, poor judgement, crippling court-cases, physical disintegration, and death. But with Paganini everything was taken to excess. This documentary presents this quality as his ‘daemon’, possibly correctly. It’s a handsome film, doubtless partial, but well worth watching. © 2011 MusicWeb International Read complete review
