L' héritage de monsieur Mergler

L' héritage de monsieur Mergler

| 30 min

Ce court métrage documentaire raconte l'histoire touchante d'une élève et de son maître. Daniel Mergler a entendu la bagatelle de Beethoven des centaines de fois. Mais, aujourd'hui, c'est différent. Étonné, le vieil homme écoute et son regard s'illumine. La jeune pianiste de neuf ans est Xin Ben, fille d'immigrants chinois. Le destin les a fait se rencontrer dans un parc de Montréal et a placé la jeune fille sous l'aile de ce professeur en fin de carrière. Elle sera sa dernière et sa plus remarquable élève.
