Unfinished love life of the genius
20 September 2010 | by (Kumamoto, Japan) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a weekly free movie session run at the Contemporary Art Museum of Kumamoto.

I was moved, listening Ave Maria at the last scene. This movie portrays the unfinished love life of the genius composer. Listening to many titles of his music, I realized Schubert was a true music genius. Both the screenplay and the performance are awkward like other movies 80 years ago. Sound is terrible. The story is a complete fiction. Nevertheless, after seeing it, I felt sense of fulfillment that I saw a good movie.

By the way, I am surprised that no one posted a review to this movie. It seems there is no English version, though this one is well rated in Japan. Maybe it is a reflection of that Schubert is more popular in Japan than the US…?
