Beautiful film about Beethoven
30 August 2020 | by beezar-66805See all my reviews

Exquisite lighting and cinematography. A first-rate example of black and white used to full effect. While not a definitive film biography of Beethoven it does capture him with great artistic license. I'm also an enthusiast of "Immortal Beloved" and Gary Oldman's excellent portrayal of Beethoven. Both are equally great in their own way and along with the 2003 "Beethoven's Eroica" by the BBC give you insight into the Mastro.
