Directed by Jan Schmidt-Garre, this affecting documentary profiles renowned Berlin Philharmonic maestro Wilhelm Furtwängler, whose unsurpassed artistry was wrought in the pressure cooker of World War II. Featuring intimate interviews, rehearsal footage and classical music excerpts such as Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony no. 7 in A Major, the film delves into Furtwängler's many passions: his music, composing and his love for his wife, Elisabeth.
