His work was a mixture of modernism, baroque and neoclassicism, and in later compositions also jazz. Despite this diversity, Ravel is best known for his composition Boléro from 1928, the origins of which are highlighted in Anne Fontaine's tasteful film.

Here, Ravel's working method and life are interwoven, based on his encounters with three women: the Russian dancer Ida Rubinstein, whose assignment was the impetus for the piece, his patron Misia Sert and the pianist friend Marguerite Long. The past seeps into the present through subdued flashbacks, adding layers to this excellent portrait of the skilled, sensitive artist.
