Das Lied der Balalaik Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The most outstanding feature of this mystery/drama is the attractive and remarkable voice of Ivan Rebroff, a bass whose performing range spans four octaves. Though many can produce squeaks, squeals and grunts spanning four octaves, untrained singers are lucky to be able to perform using two octaves, and though trained singers occasionally manage to perform using three, only very rarely are singers able to perform with four. Opera lovers will enjoy the singing in this film. Rebroff plays Samson-Sascha, a well-known opera artist, who is brutally beaten by gangsters and suffers from amnesia. Even without his memory, he regains prominence onstage. Eventually, as his memory returns, he is able to search out those responsible for his troubles. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
