Mozart’s Sister (M)
French drama about Wolfgang Mozart's elder sister, Nannerl (Marie Feret). Beginning in 1763, it follows the Mozart family’s life on the road, travelling by coach from one royal court to the next. Wolfgang (David Moreau), is a young prodigy, but Nannerl is also accomplished as a singer, harpsichordist and violinist.
Her father bows to social strictures ‘for her own good’, refusing to let her continue with the violin or compose, but Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed by her gender.
Mozart’s Sister is screening at Rialto Tauranga.
