    What an interesting theme-how did the others in Mozart's family handle his talent and fame? Based on true accounts made it more alluring. But alas, once again, the French treatment is poor. It's mind boggling how the recent spate of French films get such high marks. The lead is very poor, unable to carry what should be her film. She is unconvincing at times, hard to hear, even incoherent.What an interesting theme-how did the others in Mozart's family handle his talent and fame? Based on true accounts made it more alluring.

I did do the dreaded FFWD stopping at places to see if it picked up, but no luck. The father was strong but others just fair. Expand

    Mozart's Sister feels like a rococo reverie. The film was shot inside Versailles, which borders on the best sensory overload when you factor in the gorgeous classical soundtrack.

    The music, of course, resonates. And so does this exquisite heartbreaker of a story.

    It's a lovely dream that, in the end, feels too dreamlike. The director coaxes an intentionally passive performance from his daughter Marie, so that Nannerl's eventual waking to cold patriarchal reality doesn't sting as it might.
