Copying Beethoven
Official Selection

Anna Holtz is a 23-year-old aspiring composer lacking in wherewithal struggling to find inspiration and prosper in the music capital of the world, Vienna. Anna, a conservatory student, wangles the chance to work with the best and most voluble living artist: Ludwig van Beethoven. When unexpectedly put to the test by the sceptical Beethoven, Anna unfolds her talents and particular flair for music. The maestro decides to accept her as his copyist, marking the start of an extraordinary relationship that will change both of their lives.
Born in Warsaw, she moved to Czechoslovakia to study directing at the FAMU in Prague. Her mentor was Andrzej Wajda, with whom she collaborated on several scripts before starting to direct her own films. Works on her filmography include: Bittere Ernte (1986) and Europa Europa (1990), both nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Olivier, Olivier (1992), The Secret Garden (1993), Total Eclipse (1995), which participated in the Official Selection at San Sebastian, Washington Square (1997), The Third Miracle (1999), Golden Dreams (2001) and Julie Walking Home (2002).
