This film is basically a collection of reenactments of performances given by Johann Sebastian Bach during his life with a monotonic female voice (supposed to be Bach’s wife) explaining historical documents that lead us up to the next performance. If not for the fact that the music you are hearing is great, this movie would have no saving grace. As a film, it is atrociously boring. If you want to see what amounts to canned orchestral performances than that is what you will get. I cannot recommend this as a film.
