The title literally describes this film in a nutshell: it is comprised of thirty-two films, some only seconds in length, others going on for several minutes, describing various aspects of the life of foremost Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. His personal relationships, his need for solitude, his dependence on prescription medication are just some of the issues at hand, and they’re brought to gorgeous life by Colm Feore‘s delicate performance.
