An underrated film
15 June 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This 1970's film was underrated. The performances were more than adequate & the music of course, superb. The story of the life of Strauss has been fairly accurately depicted, and the movie offers some insight into the trials & tribulations Strauss faced, particularly in his love life. The relationship between Strauss & his mother has been chronicled well. The strain between the father & son has been dealt with accurately as well. The flavour of the times has also been well captured. All in all, a creditable fort, well worth a view. A pity that this has not been released on DVD. It is also currents unavailable on VHS.
