Anna Holz (Kruger), an eager student and aspiring composer from the Vienna Music Conservatory, gladly takes a job as copyist for the sometimes callous, yet genius, Ludwig von Beethoven (Harris). As she begins her daunting work Copying Beethoven in preparation for his Ninth Symphony debut, a tentative relationship begins to form...a relationship that eventually causes her to make a choice between love and duty.

The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is awash in tones of browns and golds, with deep, yet undefined, blacks. Details are captured well, with well-resolved fine textures. Fleshtones are accurate, and contrast is well balanced. Minor edge enhancement can be seen at times, but pixilization is minimal. (Danny Richelieu)
I love WSR because I always seem to find out information on new technology or new products in your magazine first. Sometimes I find out as much as two issues in front of other publications. I also like the fact that you are not scared of technical articles, such as the video calibration article and the Digital Video Essential article, which goes into much depth and does not just skim the surface like many other publications seem to do. I like the articles, and I always skim forward to the end of the mag to read the new DVDs scheduled for release. I enjoy the mag very much! Keep it coming!
