Thrown into the situation a few days before the historical debut of his 9th symphony, the movie may have a hard time finding it's audience with a lack of background, rendering the historical fiction confusing and irrelevant. And die hard fans seem off- put by the strange liberties the script takes with it's usage of the female counterpoint dealing with the maestros rather unhealthy behavior. Those left in the middle to enjoy this moving piece of faction that would be fact mixed with fiction , could be pleasantly surprised by some enticingly heavy scenes, articulating the creative spirit in ways that have all but been lost in modern movies of the past decade.
For his first opera in Britain in over a decade, director of the National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner, has created a musically accomplished production of real psychological depth. He was castrated in his childhood in order to preserve his voice. During his life he comes to be a very famous opera singer, managed by his mediocre brother Riccardo. Our guide through this turbulent decade is the constantly surprising Dr Richard Clay, an art historian who has spent his life decoding the symbols of power and authority. Dr Clay has always been fascinated by vandalism and iconoclasm, and believes much of the untold story of the French Revolution can be discovered through the stories of great moments of destruction.
Who were the stone masons in the crowd outside Notre Dame that pulled down the statues of kings? Why do the churches of Paris still carry all the coded signs of anti-Christian state legislation? What does it mean, and who was carrying this out? Telling the story of the French Revolution - from the Storming of the Bastille to the rise of Napoleon - as the significant modern outbreak of iconoclasm, Clay argues that it reveals the destructive and constructive roles of iconoclasts and how this led directly to the birth of the modern Europe.

At the end of his life, he observes that he helped the English with their religion.
He's living with his much younger wife Leocadia and their daughter Rosario. Throughout, his reveries become tableaux of his paintings. Her father, Thomas, comes to him hoping that his connection with Brother Lorenzo, whom he is painting, can secure the release of his daughter. Handel, The "His gifts were extraordinary.

When Beethoven loses Juliette, he moves to the mill at Heiligenstadt; realizing he's becoming deaf, profound depression sets in.
He rejects suicide, holding on to remembered sound and to his work, a dedication assisted by Therese and others. In later years, we see his devotion to an ungrateful and thieving nephew, his poverty, the isolation of deafness, and the love of friends. Turner "A look at the life of British artist J.

After the collapse of the republic, David turned coat to become Napoleon Bonaparte's court-painter, only after the royal Restoration he was banished and forgotten, 'exiled' in Brussels Belgium.

He sided with the anti-slavery movement gaining momentum to fight slave-trade by others after the British Empire abandoned it, referring to the case of the Sun sixty years earlier, when the captain of the Sun, off Jamaica, decided to swindle the ship's insurance -for losses at sea, nor death at arrival- by dumping live cargo hand-picked.
