Thierry van Werveke,
I saw this film back at the 2005 Palm Springs International Film Festival and being interested in historical subject matter and in classical music I perhaps entered into this with too much expectations. This movie did nothing for me. I thought this would be a good opportunity to have a great soundtrack of Bach music but most of the music in it is by the film's soundtrack composer Frederic Devreese. Good period costuming and set design. Vadim Glowna is excellent as Johann Sebastian Bach. This film was shot on Super 16 and printed to 35mm and almost all of this film is shot with hand held cameras. I could only muster up a Fair rating for my review. I would give this a 5.5 on a scale of 10 and I could not recommend it.
