Set in Vienna, an aspiring composer of humble means, 23-year-old Anna Holtz is seeking inspiration and career advancement in the male-dominated world of music. The best student at the music conservatory, she is recommended for a position to work beside the greatest, most mercurial artist alive - Ludwig van Beethoven. When the skeptical Beethoven issues an impromptu challenge, Anna demonstrates her competence and musical insight. The maestro accepts Anna as his copyist, beginning a remarkable relationship that will transform both of their lives. Directed by Agnieszka Holland (Secret Garden, Europa, Europa), the film features Ed Harris' remarkable incarnation as the celebrated composer, and a breakthrough performance by Diane Kruger (Troy, Joyeux Noel).
