Theremin amazed America with his instrument until his kidnapping by Soviet agents in the mid-30s. Upon his release from a labor camp, he worked on surveillance devices for the KGB. Almost 60 years later , he is brought back to America for a touching reunion with his friends and colleagues.

But at the height of his popularity, Soviet agents kidnap and force him to develop spy technology. Steven M. Martin writes and directs this intriguing documentary about a man’s “strange” music and his very interesting life as an inventor and influential musician.

It makes you want to buy a theremin and start playing….
I owe my watching this documentary to my strange daughter. Now I do not mean this in a bad way–I come from a family of strange people and the fact that she KNEW what a theremin was surprised me, as I sure didn’t. Apparently a theremin is a magnificent electronic musical instrument created in the early part of the 20th century by Dr. Theremin–a genius who had immigrated to the US around the time of the Russian Revolution. This film, then, is about the instrument and its inventor–and it makes for a slow but very interesting story worth seeing even if you are not a musician. I am certainly not one, but I found myself marveling at the beautiful and other-worldly sound of this machine. In fact, we have all heard the theremin before–most often in sci-fi movies but even in other places such as the Beach Boys’ song “Good Vibrations”. And, speaking of this, seeing Brian Wilson interviewed was pretty bizarre, as he looked pretty good but the more he talked the more you realized that he still is quite mentally ill.

Anyway, there is MUCH more to the story in regards to Dr. Theremin–much more, but I don’t want to say more because it would spoil this wonderful film. His life, put simply, is MUCH stranger than fiction! I give the documentary very high marks for all the effort it took to construct–with trips to Moscow, locating the Doctor, arranging for interviews, etc.. Clearly this was a labor of love and I appreciate this. The only reason i don’t rate this even higher is that it is a bit dry in places and although it kept my interest, I have a much larger capacity than normal for this sort of thing…and the average person might just find their mind wandering. Still, it’s fascinating and I strongly recommend you try it.
