Synopses
Antonio Gaudi (Criterion Collection) (1984)
Antonio Gaudi's startling, unique architectural and essentially sculptural creations like his undulating walls are presented with clarity and in context in this interesting documentary by Hiroshi Teshigahara. Gaudi was a Catalan, like his well-known fellow artists Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, and Salvador Dali, and he was inspired by Catalan art of the Middle Ages, specifically the Romanesque Period. Teshigahara provides a background on the region and politics of Cataluna, and reviews the Romanesque Period in art, 1000-1300 C.E., so that viewers can understand where Gaudi was coming from. Then the artist's creations are analyzed in a succinct, careful manner which reveals more to the eye than just uninformed looking could ever do. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

An excellent art-history documentary, this topic should also interest audiences simply wanting to expand their horizons a little. Though it must be admitted, Gaudi's art is not for everyone's tastes. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
