Syncopation on

The film, featuring Jackie Cooper and musicians like Benny Goodman and Harry James in their prime, has been digitally remastered. The romance between a young trumpeter and a New Orleans-born piano player serves as the narrative plot line. But the core of the film is its celebratory history of 'syncopated' music - jazz - tracing it from the turn-of-the-century sounds of ragtime, through Dixieland, the blues, Chicago jazz and the swing era.

PR Favorites Of The Moon: 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray & DVD Aug 12

Favorites Of Th

The story revolves around two objects, a rare set of 18th-century Limoges china, and a 19th century aristocratic portrait. As these items are passed, sold, or stolen from one character to another, a giddy round dance of excess begins to take shape, one which suggests that if history doesn't repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. Co-writer Gerard Brach and director Otar Iosseliani uses a feather-light touch to expose the futility of class and social order, making a bagatelle of the concerns of rich and poor alike.
