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. This is a reference to actual fact: the symphony was finished in 1824, and he died three years later without ever writing a new one. See more »

A wonderful film for children
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie 12 years ago, as a first grade student. I didn't think much about it - it was a really neat movie, and I was jealous that Christoph got to meet someone who I'd always heard adults refer to with reverence and admiration. I don't think I really realized how much I'd enjoyed it until we were given the opportunity to buy the film. I didn't have enough saved to buy the VHS, but I could afford the cassette soundtrack. When it arrived I was so excited. I took it home and spent hours listening to the story over and over, until I could practically recite it word for word. As I grew up, I would occasionally stumble across it and listen to the story again with a smile. Now, as a freshman in college, I'm taking a course on Beethoven's Symphonies. I credit my interest to seeing this movie as a child. It's a fantastic film for children. Is it on the same level as Amadeus? No, but it's still very much worth watching, and is a great way to introduce the great classical composers to young minds.
