Young Christoph is convinced his mother has rented out the upstairs room to a madman. That boarder is Ludwig Van Beethoven who is busy composing his Ninth Symphony, one of his greatest works. The boy and the cantankerously eccentric deaf composer eventually meet and Christoph begins to see the softer side of Beethoven as his music begins to win the boy over.

Did You Know?


At one point in the film, an angry Christoph is told that Ludwig van Beethoven is working on his Ninth Symphony. He retorts by saying that he hopes it is Beethoven's last. It was. The 9th symphony was finished in 1824, and he died three years later without writing another one. See more »

Great for its intended audience - children.
8 July 2002 | by lvelasquezSee all my reviews

I think ho0vdawg was too hard on this movie. It certainly was never intended to be on par with Amadeus or suitable for the same audience. That it was made for children younger than high school age is quite obvious, and one should take that into consideration when watching and evaluating it. I would recommend this movie to any interested child.
