Ed Harris is quite an actor, has always been, and playing this great musician certainly displays all his talent. Di... read more

"Home - New COPYING BEETHOVEN contains perhaps the most hilariously absurd Ed Harris performance I've ever seen. I think only his amazing dance in CREEPSHOW even comes close to how wrong-headed it is. Aside from a key sequence designed around the premiere of the 9th Symphony it's a very dour, poorly filmed, sort of film. Lacking any real energy or style. "

enjoyable music

“23-year old Anna Holtz (Diane Kruger) studies at the music conservatory and lives in a convent. She is recommended for a position, and ends up working beside Ludwig van Beethoven (Ed Harris). With him, she will be inspired and will come to understand him and his music.

Ed Harris is quite an actor, has always been, and playing this great musician certainly displays all his talent. Diane Kruger is pretty and the role suits her well.

The script was decent enough and the cinematography acceptable. The music was of course brilliant.

Quite well done, this is definitely a movie for those who enjoy classical music. Or at least period films.
