Storyline

Young Christoph is convinced his mother has rented out the upstairs room to a madman. That boarder is Ludwig Van Beethoven who is busy composing his Ninth Symphony, one of his greatest works. The boy and the cantankerously eccentric deaf composer eventually meet and Christoph begins to see the softer side of Beethoven as his music begins to win the boy over.

Trivia

At one point in the film, an angry Christoph is told that Ludwig van Beethoven is working on his Ninth Symphony. He retorts by saying that he hopes it is Beethoven's last. It was. The 9th symphony was finished in 1824, and he died three years later without writing another one. See more »

Too Loud & Too Slow
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is kind of one of those kids' after-school TV movies they used to have on television before Ophra and her ilk took over on late afternoon. It's only 50 minutes long which doesn't give it much chance for us to get the know anyone's character in any depth.

The kid, Illya Woloshyn, reminds me a little of Max Pomeranc of "Searching for Bobby Fischer." The story is so-so, certainly no 'Fischer'."

I found too much yelling (raving, actually) by Beethoven and too slow a story, even for 50 minutes.

The main attributes are the some pretty scenery and some of Beethoven's music, which is beautiful and dramatic.

Overall, not very memorable.
