Ilja Zeljenka counts among the most interesting figures of the Slovak music scene of 20 th century. The documentary by Ostrochovsky goes public two years after the composer’s death and it is a dignified commemoration which will please everyone who had the chance to encounter Zeljenka somehow, either as a student or as a colleague. Zeljenka wrote symphonies, operas, compositions for instruments, mainly for piano, cello and organ. He was an author of serial music as well as of a bulk of film music. He composed music to more than a hundred films. He exclusively cooperated with Štefan Uher, but also with some other Slovak directors, namely Grečner or Martin Slivka. The last stage of his life marked by deadly disease was captured in this documentary. The documentary about the extraordinary man who let himself be heard that to him, to his opinions and his lifestyle, Bratislava was a way too small of a city.
