Movie Info

Vienna, 1777. Maria Theresia ("Resi") Paradis, 18 years old, is blind, and a pianist of remarkable talent. Resi lost her eyesight literally overnight when she was three. After countless failed medical experiments, her overprotective parents seek out a controversial "miracle doctor," Franz Anton Mesmer, as their last hope for a cure. For Dr. Mesmer, the chance to successfully treat the young girl could lead to fame and fortune. Resi moves into the estate of the doctor and his wife, where in the company of other patients she tastes personal freedom for the first time. And Mesmer's treatments seem to have almost immediate success. However, Resi soon notices that as her sight is beginning to return, her musical virtuosity is declining. She becomes aware that being part of society as a seeing person comes at too high a price if it can mean the loss of her inner world of music.

  • The engrossing result feels entirely modern, despite more spectacular, candy-colored ruffles than you can shake a bustle at.

  • An inquisitive, curious and gorgeously accoutered period piece about science, the senses and the position of women in Mozart-era Austria.

    September 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Director Barbara Albert fashions a remarkable image of blindness and healing, of cruelty and of compassion.

    September 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It is Dragus who remains the beating heart of Mademoiselle Paradis. Her face a complex cascade of differentiating shades of anguish, and she spins Resi into a highly empathetic characterization.

    October 10, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Dragus' performance is exquisite as she embodies the blind musician, creating a thought-provoking situation of the price we place on our senses and abilities.

    August 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Mademoiselle Paradis can feel a bit slight in terms of drama. But with such visual strength and assured aesthetic sensibility, it hardly matters.
