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 »

Like comparing chalk and cheese
2 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but how could you even compare Amadeus to this film? This movie (which I haven't seen in seven odd years) was meant, essentially, for children in order to help them appreciate a great historical figure like Beethoven and bring his life to a medium they could understand. Amadeus was based on a Tony Award-winning play by Peter Schaffer and won the 1986 Oscar for Best Picture... Just lay off this movie... it wasn't out to win any awards, but rather to educate, and I think it was successful in doing that. And I don't know... I would think Immortal Beloved would be a little more than boring for students in a World History class, even though it's one of my favorites; furthermore, it concentrates too much on his romantic life, not on his Romantic music, so this movie would be more effective as a learning tool, I would think.

Now, with that rant over with... a 9/10 for Amadeus?! How could you give that film anything less than a 10/10? For shame.
