The man, the myth, the legend
I didnt think that I would like this movie. I was required to do a
review of it for one of my college classes, and I must say that I am truly
astonished by this movie.
Gary Oldman was deserving of an Oscar for his portrayal of Ludwig van
Beethoven. His performance is remarkable. The facial expressions, the
tension in his face, and his firm tone make him a perfect fit for the role.
This movie blows Amadeus away because it seems a lot more real to me.
You don't have Mozart prancing around like a fruit (which I doubt that he
was) rather you have a gripping, serious performance that really translates
the feeling of how Beethoven was.
The music is also excellent. Scenes are transgressed through the use of
music and really set the mood for the movie- just as they were reflections
of Beethoven's move when he wrote them.
A truly great movie that anyone should enjoy, rather than Amadeus which
might be more directed at the "Classic" crowd. Do yourself a great justice
and rent this movie- it is well worth it.
9 out of 10. A must see for Gary Oldman fans

gledal sem ga pred leti in mi je bil vÅ¡eÄ.
Gary Oldman at his finest. He was just like what you would imagine Beethoven to be like. Also the music is increadible even if you aren't into classical music. A good story to follow with a twist in the end..
A perfect fit when it comes to the story, the music and the cast
This was the first DVD I watched on my new high def television ,and
when you combine the terrific story with the beautiful locations where
this film was made, it is a great film. I turned a couple of my friends
in the audio/video retail business on to this film and they have used
the DVD to demo high def televisions and DVD players. The movie will
definitely separate the poor quality equipment from the good stuff. I
made my 16 year old nephew watch this movie with me and the combination
of the story and the absolute first rate acting made it possible for
him to enjoy the classical music. The movie enables someone who does
not have a taste for classical to hear and feel things about the music
they could not get from simply listening to the music by itself. It is
hard for me to think of a more underrated film than this one..
