anybody that has read any of my music reviews will know that my passion is primarily 'pop' ....my point being you do not need to have a love of the man's music to appreciate this film, you'll find a stunning portrayel of 'beethoven's' final years by 'ed harris along with great back up from'diane kruger' as 'anna'
'anna' who aspires to write her own music jumps at the oppertunity to assist the 'maestro' 'beethoven' by copying his works for him.
his health is failing and he is also allmost deaf yet continues his works.
this rude and arrogant man becomes fond of his assistant and slowley shows her the respect she hopes for.
yet despite his problems he continued writing till the end and is obviously responsible for some of the greatedt works of all time.
i must admit other than my old music's teacher's best efforts many moons ago which did give me some awareness, i didn't really make much effort to follow the 'arts' ( music ) so i wasn't sure wether this was for me, i took the chance abd i can tell you i would recommend a viewing.
