  • 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..."
