Immortal Beloved | 1995 | R | - 5.5.3

Gary Oldman stars as Ludwig Van Beethoven in this story of his life and loves.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A woman is shown being bathed by her servants with a thin camisole on and her breasts are clearly seen, but briefly. A woman's breasts are briefly seen from the side, and another from the front. Many passionate kissing scenes, with participants lightly covered with sheets. A man's buttocks are seen. A man is shown kissing a woman and trying to force sex on her. A woman is raped (see Violence/Gore).

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man hits a boy across the face numerous times, very viciously. A man tries to shoot himself causing a bloody gash across his forehead. There are many scenes of yelling and Beethoven's cruelty towards his relatives. A father threatens to beat his son and chases after him. A group of boys taunt Beethoven and kick him. A rape scene leaves the victim with a bloody neck from a knife. A brief war scene where a fiery explosion kills a child.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
