Excerpt: Aside from being a romantic mystery/composer biopic, the theatrical prints were treated to SDDS-8 sound (Sony Dynamic Digital Sound). This consists of 5 screen channels; left, left-center, center, right-center, and right.
Excerpt: I purchased 'Immortal Beloved' during the holiday season Dec. 2008. I had already viewed this outstanding film more times than I care to remember. The reason it took so long for me to write these few words is simple...life got in the way. So here is my simple review.
Excerpt: Actor Gary Oldman has played both Sid Vicious and Beethoven. Does this mean Sid looks kind of like Ludwig? LOL. I have'nt seen this whole movie since I saw it in the theater at the time of its release.
Excerpt: This film follows Anton Schindler's (played by Jeroen Krabbé) - who was Beethoven's secretary - quest to ascertain the true identity of the Immortal Beloved addressed in three letters found in the late Beethoven's private papers.
Excerpt: This definitely is not worth it...Beethoven deserves a movie like Amadeus' calibre. This is just not enough. I personally think its average and I hope they make a much better movie about this extraordinary musician who changed music's history
Excerpt: This movie was digitally remastered very well and I'm surprised at the quality of the movie, it's almost like a brand new movie. The sound was excellent, the picture was great and the movie will always be a classic. I'm very happy to have this in my collection.
Excerpt: Had the pleasure of watching this tonight. I haven't seen it in many years so there was a lot of the film I didn't remember, however the film is excellent!! I love bio films where they don't try to portray the subject as being without faults. Obviously Beethoven had a lot of them.
