A fairytale of the world of Music

Pleasant surprise! I expected the worst, it was apparent from previews that this was a highly dramatized depiction of the Mozart family. And while it does take creative license, the story is largely poetic; It's not a biography, as Shakespeare's Macbeth is not Mac Bethad Mac Findlaich's life. The director is giving us a fairytale set to the backdrop of Salzburg and Paris, part fairytale, part cautionary tale. He told it well. Its a very beautiful film, the textures of the costumes are alive, and the film is full of mood. Delicate lighting truly creates a sense of coldness, sadness. The acting is understated and convincing, Marie Feret and David Moreau have striking faces. I was especially impressed by the performance of Clovis Fouin, the troubled Dauphin. The characters are written complex, filling out a pensive script. Though a little slow, it is still engaging, its quietest scenes can be the most heart-breaking. It also captures life through the eyes of children, its a delicate film.

Very slow sleepy movie I went because it was a foreign film and a costume drama if it wasn't for the music I would have given up on this boring movie about this plain Jane sister boarding on ugly

Mozart's Sister

Lovely French costume drama. Wonderful music (of course) - not sure how true to all the facts it was, but totally entertainining nevertheless. A clear depiction of the hopelessness of being so talented, but also a woman in that day and age.
