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

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.

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.

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