Movie Info

In his last film, actor Klaus Kinski directs himself in this story of notorious 18th-century composer/violinst Niccolo Paganini. Mainly because of the emphasis on Paganini's sex life, the film's producers called the film "pornographic" (although there are no graphic sex scenes) and sued Kinski. The film had a very spotty release, Kinski never acted again, and he died three years later.

Audience Reviews for Paganini

Horribly boring with shoddy production value and editing, though I hear the producers' version is at least of better quality.

An enjoyable trainwreck and exotic curio for cinemaphiles, you learn much more about the enigmatic Kinski than about Paganini in viewing this film.

(***): Thumbs Up Interesting film and infamous in many ways, mostly as being Kinski's big pet project. A curio for cinephiles.
