| A splendid and beautiful film about Beethoven's Ninth
Baricco -an amazing writer who has worked a lot on music- did in Lezione 21 a beautiful, compelling and touching essay about Beethoven's Ninth. With amazing images, obviously incredible music, and clarity, he takes the viewer in a trip through the most famous symphony of all times.

I can understand why some were bored by the film. It is not a fictional film in itself, nor is it a documentary. It is a literary essay transformed into images and music, using every resource needed -beautiful photography and surprising scenes, vintage characters that explain their time, and a literary quality that few have achieved, all building an insightful, passionate explanation of music.

Baricco did a film that is not essential for a movie lover, but it is a must for anyone who wants to fathom the importance, the beauty and the strength of Beethoven's Ninth.
