A documentary about making the romantic historical drama "Immortal beloved"
21 August 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Update: My bad. "Beloved Beethoven" is the documentary about filming "Immortal beloved" (may be of interest for those who liked the movie). The following was actually written about "Immortal beloved". ------------------------

In fact the movie is named "Immortal beloved" and is based on a real mystery of the composer's correspondence with an unknown lover. The film unfolds Beethoven's biography during a journey by the executor of his testament trying to identify this enigmatic woman who happens to be the only heir. A historical figure, this notary was the composer's assistant and long time friend. The plot involves several stories related to key feminine characters in Beethoven's life, thus covering a substantial part of his biography.

The cast is great, the music performed by Sir Georg Solty is excellent; Gary Oldman actually plays some of the most difficult pieces. He also created a very convincing image of Beethoven - far from idealization, yet complex and powerful. The locations are beautiful and atmospheric.

In summary, this is a highly recommended romantic historical drama.
