Copying Beethoven- The Movie
I watched Copying Beethoven the other night and enjoyed it very much. It was a fictionalized version of the last three years of his life. He was plagued by deafness, lonliness,and personal trauma. Anna Holtz enters as a copiest ,engaged to help the composer finish his score for the first performance.She understands his work and tries to correct mistakes he has made. Her personality is such, that he eventually grows very fond of her. By the time the piece is performed, she is an essential part of his world. They find themselves becoming closer through their collabration.
