5.0 out of 5 stars Inside music's feuding family, 5 May 2011

This review is from: The Wagner Family (DVD)
Tony Palmer's film is an unflinching investigation into what is probably the most famous feuding family in all music - the Wagners. The EMI impressario, Walter Legge, once remarked to Wieland Wagner that dining at his table with the family circle was like an act of one of his grandfather's operas in that whenever food and drink were proffered, then treachery followed! This is abundantly evident as the various family factions denounce each other on camera for the man who made the epic Wagner film starring Richard Burton. No issue is sidestepped, least of all the controversial link with Hitler and the Nazis and new evidence is brought to light examining the history of the Hitler association. This is a fascinating documentary and an outstanding example of the unbiased honesty of Tony Palmer's film-making. Essential viewing.
