Immortal Beloved 1994

The life and death of the legendary Ludwig van Beethoven. Beside all the work he is known for, the composer once wrote a famous love letter to a nameless beloved and the movie tries to find out who this beloved was. Not easy as Beethoven has had many women in his life.

Oldman is magnificent and the story, while not historically accurate, is gripping. Bernard Rose's choice of particular pieces of Beethoven's music to match the scenes in question is more often than not inspired. The "Ode to Joy" sequence, played to Beethoven's memories of his childhood, is frankly one of the finest musical sequences committed to film and the finale is heartbreaking.
