About the Film
Eight-year-old Louis van Beethoven comes of age in provincial Bonn and is considered a musical prodigy whose talent is cultivated by the local elite. A momentous encounter with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Vienna and the political upheavals of the time, arouse a freedom-loving spirit in the young Beethoven, ultimately leading him to career defining apprenticeship with Joseph Haydn.
In 1826, following the success of his Ninth Symphony, an aging Ludwig van Beethoven, now completely deaf, retreats from the public eye to his brother’s rural estate to work on a series of difficult pieces. Prompted by the arrival of a letter from a lost love, the composer’s mind drifts back to the turning points and missed opportunities of his life.
Celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday, this lavish biopic explores the life of one of classical music’s greatest geniuses.
