Fresh: A little slow, but overall a good film.

- Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: I doubet whether Rose's speculative chronicle of the genius Beethoven will rekindle interest in the composer's life and work in the same way that Amadeus did for Mozart; the music, though, is nicely recorded by George Solti and London Symphony Orchestra

I enjoyed this one immensely Gary Oldman has such depth and range that he disappears into his characters. It doesn't matter if he's playing Count Dracula or Sid Vicious or Ludwig Van Beethoven, I'm never consciously aware that I'm watching an imitation. He's just that good.

This movie is beautiful. His life totally sucked, a real tortured genius. The end of this movie when he is in the lake as ode to joy plays is one of the most powerful things i've ever seen.
