- "Herbert von Karajan: a portrait departs from cliched images of this imposing and charasmatic artist, looking behind the drama of his style and the superstardom of his career to rehabilitate his reputation as technically and aesthetically one of the most proficient conductors of his time. Archival footage of Karajan leading a variety of orchestras ... show him as not only extraordinarily intense and powerful but also warm and engaging ... The film also takes an unflinching look at conflicts in the career of a great but flawed artist. Karajan's alleged relationship with the Nazi Party is examined with fairness and clarity."--Container.
