Immortal Beloved
(Format : DVD)
This thrilling, speculative story about the mystery woman whom Ludwig van Beethoven once identified in a letter as his "immortal beloved" is directed by Bernard Rose (Paperhouse). Gary Oldman plays the deaf genius with tragic brutality in a series of flashbacks that arise during a connect-the-dots investigation by Beethoven's secretary (Jeroen Krabbé), who is looking into the composer's love affairs to ascertain who held the key to his heart. Rose arrives at a moving if imperfect portrait of a complicated artist, and he pays gorgeous tribute to Beethoven's stolen innocence in childhood. (You may never hear the Ninth Symphony again without thinking of Rose's beautiful image of young Ludwig immersed in cosmic rapture.) Produced by Mel Gibson's company, Icon. (Review by Tom Keogh)
