Beethoven's life offers strong material for drama: his struggles with deafness, his custody battle for his nephew Karl, and the enigma of "The Immortal Beloved." His music, full of storm and stress, is ideal to accompany the personal crises. All this makes for a good recipe for such a film as "Immortal Beloved." We'll hear to what dramatic purposes Beethoven's great music is put in this film.
