Varga

Varga; Soňa Maletz, 2017, OV (sk); Soňa Maletz, 2017, versions: OR,

Director: Soňa Maletz • Scenario: Soňa Maletzová • Camera: Soňa Maletzová, Maxim Kľujev • Music: Marián Varga, Collegium Musicum, Prúdy • Haircut: Marek Šulík • Cast: Marián Varga, Jana Vargová, Fedor Frešo, František Griglák, Pavol Hammel, Martin Valihora, Peter Bálik

In the sunset of his life and aware of the inevitable – this is how Marián Varga, the iconic character of Slovak big beat, is seen and portrayed up close and personal by an aspiring Slovak directress, Soňa Maletzová who sketches a portrait of an artist as an old man. “We are here for a moment, by accident,” says the staunch admirer of Albert Camus while puffing from his inseparable cigar. For some time, he tried to replace them with electronic cigarettes but when he learned about his deadly diagnosis and poor prospects, the doctors didn’t even bother to reprimand him. Ingenuously editing archive footage, the film condenses various decades of Varga’s life and career into integral music numbers in which the same composition echoes through interpretations from various periods. His mortal frame along perhaps with his style of playing and temperament changes visibly; however, somewhere beneath Varga remains admirably unchanged, artistically and humanly consistent.
