Movie Reviews

Best renditions of Strauss music
Glenn O. Radtke | 09/26/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The story is a little soapy, the acting just okay, but this mini-series has the most glorious renditions of the Strauss family's music you will find. It should be a CD so you might as well buy the video."
Good History, Good Writing, and Good Acting
Gridley | asheville, north carolina USA | 12/08/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Writing a movie script about a family can be problematic unless the script writer knows someone has to be the central character, as did the writers of The Strauss Family. Constructed about the life of Johann Junior, this series depicts the highs and lows of the creative life.
The acting seems a bit like summer stock at times, but good writing and directorial pacing minimizes this weak link.
All in all, good history, good writing, and good acting."
Strauss Family
Dave | Columbia, SC | 09/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was very enjoyable and about the right length to cover the subject. Wonderful music."
A wonderful movie
Josephine N. Hood | alb, n.m. usa | 12/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was one of the best movie I have watch in a longtime. The music was wonderful so was the story line. I love biographies and this was one of the best."
