During the first World War, two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German P.O.W. camp. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
Teenager Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.
Most enjoyable, on original locations that in themselves already greatly support the accuracy of emotionally experiencing Mozart's life, it is brought to unequaled aliveness - due also to the profound understanding and love and sense of beauty, that creator and director, Marcel Bluwal most obviously possesses for Mozart and the life that Mozart was immersed in. He lets Bantzer and Bouquet (resp. Mozart, and his father) - far better than in any other movie since - bring out the truly difficult emotional connections, that any very productive talent of the highest caliber, like Mozart, has - (emotions for and from interacting) with the 'outside world.' And - as opposed to in Milos Forman's unfortunately better known "Amadeus" movie - Marcel Bluwal in his 1982 three part Mozart movie for TV, does it accurately, and to profound emotional impact. Added to that the capture of all that, by superb camera and lighting work, and great attention to historic detail with an excellent choice of music - makes it indeed a truly advisable experience for anyone who loves Mozart's music.
