Customer Review

on 23 August 2012
A sublime film with Gary Oldman playing Beethoven with deep intensity as he of course is so well known from that famous portrait. This portrait is present in one particular scene of the film and you can immediately see how good Oldman really is. I never for a moment took the film as portraying a factual story but rather as a way to show the character of Beethoven and maybe also to show how his great genius was engendered (encroaching deafness, love lost). The lighting is superb, the use of Beethoven's great music is astonishing. I watched the film with one of my sisters and she like me were deeply emotionally affected throughout. I think it really shows what it took to be such a genius and it simply demonstrates in the most sublime way his music, oh his music, or as is said at the end of the film, how could anyone who could write music like that be all bad.
