Ravel's Brain

I just watched a short film about the death of Maurice Ravel. The music was haunting and perfectly appropriate for each scene. It was kind of set up like a documentary/biography, interviewing his (very old now) friends, but it was mainly an art film (it was on Bravo after all), and there were scenes of a neurosurgeon's monologue/aria, contemplating Ravel's condition and upcoming surgery. The film was very interesting, and I got chills from the music. Very sad ending to his life.
