Must see not only for Bach enthusiasts
18 December 2006 | by (Hinsdale, IL) – See all my reviews

What transpires from that movie is an uneasy truth about life in early eighteen century in general and particularly Bach's. Very realistically shows life full of struggle, tragedy, and inconveniences hard to imagine today. The movie is filled with heavy, depressing atmosphere. Reflects very well stuffiness of tight quarters where most action takes place, daily grinding of trivial problems and conflicts, and heavy blows of which Bach was not spared during his difficult life. And in these circumstances Bach emanates in some miraculous way his heavenly music. Movie is well shot and well acted, although not quite for a Hollywood style picture lover.
