Storyline

Beginning in 1763, the film follows the Mozart family's exhausting life on the road, traveling by coach from one royal court to the next, where the nobility marvel at young Wolfgang's prodigious talent. But accomplished singer, harpsichordist, violinist Nannerl, Wolfgang's elder by five years, first held forth as the family's infant prodigy. At the film begins, she is still performing, though overshadowed and sidelined as accompanist by Wolfgang's growing fame. Her father bows to social strictures "for her own good," refusing to let her continue with the violin or compose, while privately conceding Nannerl's talent to his wife. No longer a precocious tot, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed by her gender and frets about her prospects. Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Goofs

Near the opening of the film, Nannerl tells Louise that she is 14, almost fifteen. This place the action in the winter of 1765-66. While the character Louise says she is 13, the real Louise would have been 28 years old. In fact, the princess return to court from the Abbey of Fontevraud in 1750, the year before Nannerl's birth.

Lovely graceful film -- excellent acting
12 April 2011 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the FilmFest DC in April 2011.

The story was complex on so many levels: the wonderful family relationship of the Mozarts as they travelled around Europe. The strong feminine influences; the strictures of society that allow the older sister's intellect to waste away; the daughters of the king who were locked away in isolation.

The costumes were authentic without being overly lush.

The relationship between the young Wolfgang and his older sister was quite touching.

The growth of the lead actress from barely a teen to a woman accepting her fate was written (all within a year or so) and acted very well.

There was an interesting subplot with the king's daughter that showed the two girls/women accepting the same fate albeit at different levels of society.
