| Loss of Sight, But Then ...
A fascinating and factual look at 18th century (1700s+) European life as we "look" into the life of Maria Theresia von Paradis an accomplished pianist & composer (possible connection w/Mozart) who was blind (or nearly so) at a young age; gains some vision w/the help of the famous Mesmer & his use of magnetism to affect biology. But, at a cost. Acting was superb especially the in-demand actress Maria Dragus as Paradis. Sets, props, costumes, makeup all aristocratically world class. Remarkable look at the extent people went to achieve a certain appearance from wigs to skin emollients many of which were disgusting at least and even poisonous such as lead. Not uncommon at that time because of the prevalence of skin parasites, diseases, and lost teeth. She died in 1824, and accomplished much despite the visual challenges.
