  • A lush, epic staging of the life and loves of Ludwig Van Beethoven, this film examines the tempestuous composer through one man's search for Beethoven's supposed "Immortal Beloved." The sequence involving the first public performance of the Ninth Symphony is particularly stirring.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Glorious music..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Beethoven dazzlingly impersonated by [Oldman]....An extremely ambitious classical music video..."
    New York Times

    "...It exerts an irresistible pull....Fine as an evocation of an artist who was able to hold the cosmos between two deaf ears." -- Rating: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...[The] tiny details show that someone has done their homework..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A film that imagines the mental states of Beethoven with a series of images as vivid and convincing as a dream..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Oldman gets the madness of the man perfectly; but the real star of the show is Rose, who time and again finds brilliant evocations of Beethoven's music..."
