Fascinating character study
on November 17, 2007
Ed Harris did a wonderful job portraying the character of Beethoven. I found the story line to be accurate as much as we know about the man today. It made him very real to me, as a spiritual being - an artist creating with sound, and his love of the effect of sound. The movie was interesting and inspiring, all the way through.
Though it was not thought provoking, the movie had a deeper spiritual aspect that cleared up misconceptions I had about Beethoven, allowing me to enjoy Beethoven's works with enriched understanding of the man himself.
