The film is a very good look at the life and love of Ludwhig Beethoven.
It is perhaps not one of the best films portraying a musician (Amadeus
is perhaps far greater) but deserves to be observed. The best part of
this film are the performances which are completely underrated. Gary
Oldman who doesn't look the part makes it completely his own. He
resembles the inner and outer life of this old genius. Gary Oldman
himself a genius is great at performing genius. And the rest of the
cast give a solid and strong framing for the entire story of Beethoven.
This is a must see for fans of great acting and those who want to know
the story of this immortal Man who shall live for all times..

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 Great Tribute to a Musical Genius!
Ludwig Van Beethoven wrote the Ode to Joy which is one of my favorite
classical pieces of all time. It's sad that his genius was shadowed by
many demons. He had many including a passion for one woman who he
described as his immortal beloved. He was a tough person to understand.
Gary Oldman should have easily earned a Best Actor Nomination for this
performance. Isabella Rosselini is also excellent as one of the women.
Miriam Margolyes OBE has a smaller role in the film as a hotel keeper.
The sets are lovely and the costumes are incredible. Beethoven's legacy
still lives on today. Whenever we hear the Ode to Joy whether it's at
the Olympic Ceremonies sung "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee" which is
also sung at churches. We can thank Beethoven. His relationship with
his nephew Karl was strained by Ludwig's desire and obsession to mold
Karl into his image. This occurred after Ludwig lost his hearing and
became deaf to the world. He didn't know sign language. I found
Oldman's performance as heartbreaking and beautiful..
