    Agnieszka Holland, director (104 min., 2006)

    A fictionalized version of the last three years of Beethoven’s life, focusing on the composition of the Ninth Symphony. Plagued by deafness, loneliness, and personal trauma, the composer engages a new copyist, a conservatory student whose kindness and competence facilitate the completion of the masterpiece, even at great personal cost to herself.
