filmnya biasa aja, tapi karena fans Beethoven tambah satu bintang...
I didn't really like this film, but I'll give it some extra credit for the music
3-stars owing to the Ode to Joy scene
Beethoven is unknown, except for his body of work. This movie is intense, touching, full and unfilled with love. Gary is sobrio, because you must be sobrio, if you wants to be him. I mean, him.
That shot from directly overhead of Ludwig floating on his back in the water at night surrounded by stars is so right. Opus 111.
the movie is dismal butbut Gary Oldman is intense and great like always.
If it wasn't for Oldman, the movie would probably be mediocre.
