The exchanges between Louise and Nannerl are sometimes laborious, even stilted. Making the casting of these two characters a family affair was probably not the best idea.
Gilded authentic locations and restrained performances provide an effective setting for Féret's theory about Nannerl's talent being stifled by conventions.
A meandering but transporting journey, which offers glimpses of a world as resplendent as it is stifling.
The music, of course, resonates. And so does this exquisite heartbreaker of a story.
An alternately rapturous and frustrating experience.
This is a sad story in rich surroundings that makes you wonder how many women of genius were left behind.
Despite its initial potential, Mozart's Sister fails to rouse, partly due to its unfortunately meagre budget and also the humdrum screenplay
Everything played well for me.
Romantic and engaging-with lush musical detail throughout-this most enjoyable film is, in the end, a thoroughly demoralizing tale of female oppression.
A well-designed, tasteful affair.
You feel the Mozart of Peter Schaffer's Amadeus could easily have emerged from this squabbling, loving, pressurised unit.
Provokes some fascinating questions about history's also-rans and the evolution of feminism, plus Marie Feret delivers a charming performance in the title role.
With sumptuous locations and costumes, the restrained performances present a powerful tale of gender inequality and quiet injustice. "Nannerl, la soeur de Mozart" is well worth watching.
Thirteen year old Nannerl Mozart(Marie Feret) and her ten year old brother Wolfgang(David Moreau) are on a tour of the royalty of Europe, giving musical performances along the way. Their father(Marc Barbe) is pleased at Wolfgang's progress but has forbidden his daughter from composing and feels the violin is not a ladylike instrument. The monotony of the journey is broken up when an axel is broken on their carriage, forcing them to stay at a convent while repairs are undertaken. While there Nannerl makes friends with Louise(Lisa Feret), the seventh daughter of King Louis XV, who asks her to bring a letter to her brother, the Dauphin(Clovis Fouin), who she has never met, when Nannerl goes to Versailles.
Admittedly, the story of Nannerl Mozart does deserve to be told but not really like this, as in the end "Mozart's Sister" basically only serves as a slow moving and unnecessary reminder of how bad the 18th century was for women. While the lives of women have increased tremendously since then, other things have not improved like long distance family trips and stage parents. And that's not to mention how some people only judge a work of art by the artist's age. By comparison, the highlights of the film, outside of a shot of the Dover cliffs, involve the scenes where Nannerl passes for male.
Humanist tale of how an equally gifted child of the Mozart clan is, um, bypassed simply by dint of her sex, and how she struggles against the tide. Pillowy costumer with an elegant, if baroque music score, but the story moves with glacial rapidity.
I loved every minute of this romantic portrayal of one history's lesser-known geniuses. The film poses lots of questions about the origin of talent; the will to fight in its defense; and the way your talent is perceived because of your gender. A great performance by capable youth Marie Féret, in the title role.
