For all you aficionados of pop who think you couldn't be into classical music,TIME Music critic Chris Farleyurges you to see this movie -- about the life of Ludwig van Beethoven -- and buy the soundtrack. "The movie is like an MTV video for classical music," says Farley. "It may not be all that enjoyable for someone who, say, is a little bit stuffy and wrote a doctoral thesis on Beethoven, but if you have an open mind, you'll find the music in this movie enchanting."
