The work and life philosophy of the grandfather of contemporary New Zealand jewellery, Kobi Bosshard, is explored in this Kiwi documentary.

"In a modest workshop in a beautiful Central Otago landscape, Swiss goldsmith Kobi Bosshard, approaching 80 ... continues to produce works of classic simplicity and elegance. Daughter Andrea Bosshard’s [The Great Maiden's Blush] lucid and loving film portrait of her father – and of her mother Patricia too – is one of the year’s loveliest films, a lyrical evocation of rich, unhurried life."

Contemporary New Zealand jewellery sits pretty far outside my sphere of interest, and this became quite clear as I was watching Andrea Bosshard’s documentary about her 80-year-old Swiss-born goldsmith father. After its slightly rambling 100 minutes were over, I’m none the more enthused about the topic. But as a deeply personal essay, Kobi is an admirable, sincerely probing effort to both excavate the Bosshard lineage and highlight the third-generation jeweller’s achievements.

A pleasant, possibly exhaustive and often quite engrossing portrait of an artist and family man at work and at home.
