Finally, the mouthpiece has a very modern profile, perhaps of the 20th Century. It is served up as a sort of platonic love affair: the stormy friendship between Beethoven (a bewigged Ed Harris) and his brilliant, beautiful, but entirely fictional young amanuensis and copyist Anna Holtz (Diane Kruger). Early on, in her scene with Schlemmer, Anna informs us that the premier will be on Sunday. A pretentious historical drama that's ultimately a drag, despite Ed Harris' powerful performance. I was lucky enough to watch this movie way back in the summer (it just recently became available for review on Flixster.) and to receive email from Rotten Tomatoes and Fandango. In one scene, Beethoven refers to his "Moonlight Sonata" (Sonata 14, Opus 27, No. If they don't buy it, how could I? | Rotten (58). | Rating: C- Despite some profane dialogue and actions, the movie combines music and spirituality to extol the Glory of God, including His benevolence, His inspiration of mankind through music, and His grace to us as human beings. |, August 17, 2007 They won't be able to see your review if you only submit your rating.

Rather superficial, anachronical storyline... the script does have a few clever moments, though, some phrases Beethoven delivers are wonderful, but the rest pretty much fall into cliché. It is 1824. Anna Holtz (Diane Kruger), a student at the Vienna Music Conservatory, eagerly accepts an assignment to work as a copyist for composer Ludwig van Beethoven (Ed Harris). |, April 24, 2009 After Anna Holtz catches Karl van Beethoven stealing and Karl runs out the door, Anna quickly runs to her desk takes off her jacket.
Amateurishly written, scarcely acted tosh.

The thing is that Amadeus made me swallow its story, shoved it down my throat and got me involved: what it showed, I considered it as true as anything else on celluloid. During the performance of the 9th, the trumpet player is shown playing a European style rotary valve trumpet with clock-spring valves (Riedl?) Earnest but lackluster period biopic on the final days of the mentally tortured deaf composer Ludwig von Beethoven.

If only they could cut that scene out and market it as a short film... they would have received much better reviews, and they would have said all they appeared to want to say. May 7, 1824, was in fact a Friday. A fictionalised exploration of Beethoven's life in his final days working on his Ninth Symphony. |, July 6, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 I don't mean Copying Beethoven is unwatchable, there is one particular scene in which it's all about the music... it plays rather like a music video, but it's fantastic, epic, and one can only wish that the rest of the film was that good. It's the kind of movie made purely for acting awards, which is really unfair to audiences who deserve at least some story for their money. | Rating: 2/4 Your Ticket Confirmation # is located under the header in your email that reads "Your Ticket Reservation Details". Throughout the movie Beethoven is shown to be hard of hearing but quite capable of understanding people who speak loudly. Diane Kruger also gives a noteworthy performance as Beethoven's composing assistant. Copying Beethoven 1 / 5 stars 1 out of 5 stars. Coming Soon.
| Rating: 1/5 A great example of that time-honoured genre, the biopic so silly it plays like a spoof. Many people may call it blasphemous to say such a thing about such a renowned artist. You're almost there! I believe Agnieszka Holland was intelligent to have chosen to develop only so much of Beethoven's life, instead of stuffing it all into one film (she chose the time during which he premiered the Ninth Symphony); still, the film has some very serious flaws: Diane Kruger as a feminist aspiring composer who works as Beethoven's unlikely copyist: miscast. Coming Soon. However, it has been years since his last success and he is plagued by deafness, loneliness and personal trauma. The film is shot beautifully and its cinematography is brilliant. Coming Soon. Stuck between Kruger's blankness and Harris's overemoting, the film never finds a balance. |, November 20, 2008 The percentage of users who rated this 3.5 stars or higher. ed harris as beethoven was unique, and diane krueger redeemed herself in my eyes (in troy she was a bit boring) with her acting in this film. She brings a resilience to a character that shouldn't even exist, given the sexist divisions and gender role issues that existed in that era. The reference to the Appassionata piano sonata in the same scene is similarly anachronistic.
We all know about other fictionalized biopics like Amadeus, films that distort the truth. history. that were first developed in 1835. The film depicts Beethoven conducting the premier of his Ninth Symphony with Anna's help and at the end her turning him around at the podium to see the thunderous applause. All rights reserved.

At the end of the performance it was one of the soloists, Caroline Unger, who turned him around to see the enthusiastic applause of the audience.
