As writer and director, Bernard Rose must take full responsibility for the fictions masquerading as fact in his treatment of Beethoven's life and loves.

Rose's Beethoven biopic is something of a Europudding, a stodgy concoction of clashing accents and performance styles.

Imitation Ken Russell biopic lacking in power and a feel for the music.

I just did not buy Oldman as Beethoven. I thought he was miscast, and he certainly overacted.

I doubet whether Rose's speculative and overwroght chronicle of Beethoven will rekindle interest in the composer's life and work in the same way that Amadeus did for Mozart.
