Cyclus van Kleinigheden

Een film van Ana Torfs

- Majoritaire -

Synopsis
After 1815 the composer's health degenerated rapidly and his hearing worsened so much that he was no longer able to understand all conversations, so visitors had to make themselves intelligible by writing in notebooks Van Beethoven always had with him, until his death in 1827. Ana Torfs serene and severe film looks at Van Beethoven's life through the unique records left in these conversation books. They contain the words that were literally addressed to the deaf composer during some of the most important phases of this last years ; they "conserve" as it were, what happened all around him. "Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten" (Cycle of trifles) provides an insight, albeit literally one-sided, into his every day life and creates a unique picture of Beethoven in his natural environnement through very stylized and timeless black-end-white scenes.
