Storyline

Katarina is 20 years old. With a troubled past in a dreary suburb, her life seems to be already set in stone - until she discovers music. Everything changes when she hears a performance of Mozart's Requiem at the Gothenburg Concert Hall that sends her reeling and opens up a beautiful new world. She feels that she has to change her life and get as far away from her ugly reality as possible. But the path she has to follow proves a treacherous one, filled with lies, betrayal and a dangerous liaison with the married conductor Adam. Yet Katarina is ready to do anything to gain her new identity. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, Katarina goes to the library and asks for "Rachmaninoff's piano concerto, with Richter." She finds a seat and plays the CD. The audio is not Rachmaninoff though, but Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major (K. 622). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Katarina: [wearing headphones listening to Mozart] We don't have all the time in the world. You shouldn't waste life, so the only thing that happens is that your pussy gets slack. The first time I heard Mozart was on YouTube. That's nearly a year ago. I was searching for some stupid clip, and suddenly I was captivated - by the music. Since then, they can't touch me. They can take their cocks and their ugly lives and say what they want. I don't care. I'm not there anymore. In some bloody way ...

About music? Or what, exactly.

Glam? Music is an art form.

To make a film about music, one should respect the subject and performers within the confines of the script.

Pretty faces do not music make.

Nor does production values film make. Scripting is story, production is canvas,direction is product.

Any musician would see, any at all, poor research on behalf of the writer(s).

Go for it with gusto next time, practice, practice, practice.

Makes perfect.

It is with dull merit that I had to include more lines than needed to get this review submitted. So be it. This film does not express what it tried to say, but follies about with faces and drama.
