Wow. Great, touching documentary. Must see.
24 November 2018 | by safelton_11See all my reviews

What a phenomenal documentary! It interweaves the personal lives of the people in the orchestra in this city in the Congo with their rehearsing to play Beethoven's 9th Symphony. You learn about the people, the problems the country has been having, interspersed with their total dedication to playing great classical music. The editing is just fantastic.The conductor is such a dignified man, great presence. I really liked that the footage of the actual performance shows only a little of Beethoven, but then surprises us with a nice excerpt of another piece, which they also play very well. Helped me my French too.
