Ludwig van - A report by Mauricio Kagel (DVD)

Beethoven enters in Kagel’s film »Ludwig van« the world of the 20th century which is mainly driven by marketing and selling aspects of His music to “celebrate” his birthday. But Kagel’s film is not just a satire about the consumer society, the black and white movie is intentionally dislodged, disturbed, disrespectful, even aggressive. »Ludwig van« is definitely neither a documentary reportage nor a biographical film or anecdote, Kagel provokes his audience, takes the listener by surprise, irritates with surrealistic pictures.
