Yet Another Mis-Interpreted Wonderful Film…
Once again, a film of such glory fell on deaf ears – no pun intended – in this country. I have spent hours reading reviews on this film, stating how awful it was, because it was not true to the real Beethoven’s life…. Well, I believe that early on in my life, I learned about some- thing called “Poetic License”….and, in fact, this film IS, basically, a poem. The movie is BASED on a letter that Beethoven actually DID write, to his mystery lover. No one knows, for sure, who the woman really was. And, this is simply a beautiful interpretation of someone’s dream of who she COULD’VE been.
This was regarded as an AWFUL thing to do, by many Beethoven authorities – and by people who simply DOUBTED.
Yet, what went overlooked because of these critics’ lack of open-mindedness – was an exquisite blend of glorious music, and SUPREME acting.
Once again, Mr. Oldman gave a performance like no other actor in the world can quite match. His style, sensitivity, and
genius as the Tragic Beethoven, was magnificent.
Jeroen Krabbe’s portrayal of Anton Schindler, Beethoven’s friend and champion – was marvelous.
Johanna ter Steege – who portrayed Johanna, Beethoven’s sister- in-law – was exquisite. Why did they ignore HER? It would’ve been nice to have her stay here, rather than return to her Dutch homeland – to become a major motion picture star, as well. She had one special attribute – she could ACT.
The sets, costuming, sound, and editing were all BEAUTIFUL. But the film was ignored.
Above all, however, Gary Oldman’s performance ranked among the best in the world – but it, too, was ignored.
Give the film another chance. It deserves FAR more than it GOT. It was, simply, beautiful…
If I was going to make a movie…
If was a director, I would be sure to look at such films as “Kafka”, “Quiz Show”, and “Immortal Beloved”(and many many others) and hope that my film would have as much style and taste as these films, particularly “Immortal Beloved.” From the first time I saw it, “Immortal Beloved” became one of my all-time favorite movies. For one thing, I love the cast. Director Bernard Rose has filled his movie with such top-notch European actors as Johanna Ter Steege, Valeria Golino, Marco Hofschnieder, Miriam Margoyles, Isabella Rossellini, and particularly in the choosing of his two leads–Jeroen Krabbe(my favorite actor) and Gary Oldman. I have seen and enjoyed all of these actors in one or more other project, and to have them ALL together is just wonderful. Plus the director genius, Bernard Rose, also wrote a great script:the flashback sequences give us a great look upon Beethoven, and they very carefully fit around the search that Beethoven’s secretary embarks upon to find the mysterious woman, the “Immortal Beloved”, whom Beethoven left his entire estate and music to in a letter. I like how he narrows he is able to narrow his search to just three women, after finding a nearly illegible signature the woman left behind at a hotel(“is that a G or a J?” Schindler wonders. “Looks like an A to me,” he is told by the hotel worker). I like being able to learn the impact Beethoven left upon all three, and the accounts of Schindler and his nephew provide some great insite as well. I love the chemistry between all cast members, particularly Oldman and Krabbe and Krabbe and Rossellinni. Well, I loved absolutely everything about this movie. I can only hope that if I ever made a movie, it would turn out to be as well-written, superbly acted, and as beautifully made as “Immortal Beloved.”
