From The Red Shoes to Rambo, for 70 years Cardiff's work helped to define the nature of cinematography. Dustin Hoffman handed him an honorary Oscar in 2001, the first ever for a director of photography. This film, using many extracts and interviews, explains why. 'Affectionate and fascinating...a celebration of the art of cinematography, particularly in a pre-digital age...Sweet and moving, but be warned, this film could seriously damage your finances, as it's likely to prompt an irresistible urge to rush out and buy Cardiff's entire back catalogue.' (Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film)
