Storyline

The film spotlights famed composer Franz Schubert, who loves a woman from afar. He stands by in quiet desperation as his beloved is married to a dashing military officer, then pours his sorrow (and his love) into his work. To avoid royalty payments, most of the Sigmund Romberg score is jettisoned, replaced by authentic Schubert themes. Written by Mathew Templar

highly recommendable for music lovers
5 May 2002 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews



The movie is highly recommendable for those who like classical music, especially Schubert art songs. It should rank among the better movie biographies which were in vogue in the 30's to the 50's. The clichés and historical inaccuracies were kept to a minimum, and we get a large dose of glorious music.

Although I consider myself an opera fan, I had never actually heard the tenor Richard Tauber, who plays Schubert, before seeing the movie. Not only does he have a fine voice, but he is a charming actor and somehow, he does look like the historical Franz Schubert, or at least that is how they made him up in this film.

I do not know the original Sigmond Romberg music of the musical, but how can you go wrong with using authentic Schubert music?

Once again, highly worth seeing for classical music lovers, or those movie fans curious to see pre-World War II film musicals based on real characters.
