Description: The movie shows the genesis of the Swiss Tropical Institute under the direction of Rudolf Geigy. From his employees and students he was partly admired, partly feared. His moods and outbursts were legendary. As a wealthy industrialist, he was able to afford virtually everything and generously invested in the establishment of the Tropical Institute, but also made considerable development aid in Africa. A find for traces with contemporary witnesses.

The Last Waltz Reviews:

Martin Scorsese's documentary has been labelled a time capsule of an era, and whilst this kind of reference usually sounds overstated, there is no doubting the accomplishment of this movie as an event. Many test the documentary 'Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music' as the ultimate example of a music-doco, but whilst the melody in The Last Waltz is now on par with the nice performances of Woodstock (bar Jimi Hendrix[there's no substitute]), the thing which elevates The Last Waltz is the photography. This was the first melody doco to be shot on 35mm and watching the concert, you'd think that every performance was carefully choregraphed over a several weeks of shooting rather than over one night. Unique thanks gotta be given to Cinematogrpaher Michael Chapman for his efforts on this film. The look of the movie is what elevates it's overall appeal, because the melody was everytime going to be epic, especially with the cavalcade of nice names performing. This is just nice filmmaking from contemporary cinema's most accomplished filmmaker. And how about that haunting theme that both begins and ends the film. Just great.


This film was only a name to me until I saw it last year. Immediately, I was riveted by everything about it. I've everytime been a casual fanatic of The Band, and of Levon Helm in particular. However, I'd never been bowled over by Bob Dylan, except as a songwriter, so much of The Band's work remained unknown to me as well. I wouldn't tell I've become a rabid fan, but I am much more interested in their work, now.It's a Scorsese film--how should it not be beautifully photographed, but Scorsese managed a hard feat: he keeps himself out of the movie, except as interviewer during those sequences. This is not really Scorese's vision of a rock concert. It happened mostly organically, certainly with mistakes, gaffes and grit. This is part of its charm. There are better singers than the guys in The Band, but several better musicians. This can be illustrated with Robbie Robertson in the Clapton song: Clapton's guitar strap comes off and Robertson, with one beat, picks right up on the solo. It looked planned, but wasn't. Joni Mitchell was notoriously difficult to back up, due to her original guitar tuning, and ragged song phrasing, but bassist Rick Danko fills in each zone with intricate bass figuring. Perhaps we have become too accustomed to the overwrought, over-hyped, overproduced, overexposed, shiny gack that passes for famous melody to appreciate the raw, the imperfect, the sheer humanness of this music. Scorsese shows it all. The guys in The Band were largely worn out and sometimes strung out in the interviews. They are tired, scrawny, empty-eyed from the excesses of the road. Rick Danko is hovering on the ragged edge, as his band is dissolved, and he tells his target is to "keep busy." Richard Manuel looks lost as he tells "I just wish to break even." These are two musicians who desperately required the music, but who were murdered by the road. We see their bleak destinies in their eyes in this film. It is bittersweet certainly, but also a moment in time, crystallized into something nice by the music, the love of friends, the willingness of the director to simply stand back and let the melody to happen. It also reminds us what nice melody used to sound like and makes me want should exist again.


In the words of Robbie Robertson, "The Last Waltz" began as a concert and turned into a celebration. There is no word that can be used to describe "The Last Waltz" better than 'celebration'. This is a celebration of The Band, and of music, specifically American music, which The Band loved and played so many styles of."The Last Waltz" is a concert film, and there's a common sentiment outside of the rock fanatic community that such movies can never be real art films. If proof exists that this is not true, "The Last Waltz" is it. The movie is brilliantly directed by Martin Scorsese, who captures this incredibly strong and remarkable performance with skill that can't be described as anything another than amazing. This movie looks absolutely stunning. What else can one ask for another than a movie that looks pristine and beautiful, and includes some of the greatest melody ever written? Scorsese is a smart filmmaker and knows that he should add to the movie by including short interview segments with the members of The Band, all of which are relevant to and enhance the film.The beauty of "The Last Waltz" is its simplicity. The Band were probably the most unpretentious major musical group there has ever been. They were interested in nothing another than testing nice music, and Scorsese, at least in this instance, is not interested in doing anything another than creating a simple, real document of a memorable, nice musical event. That's what he does, he captures a brilliant concert where the addition of celebrity musical guests does not cheapen it at all, but makes it a real celebration of music. Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Neil Young... the list goes on and on. Phenomenal musicianship, phenomenal film-making, a phenomenal movie all around. One of the greatest and most joyous movies ever made. 10/10
