About This Product

The movie is based on a classical music album of the same name and tells the story of a young boy named Christoph (played by Illya Woloshyn), who lives in Vienna, Austria during the 1800s.

One day, Christoph's mother takes in a new tenant, who turns out to be the famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven (played by Neil Munro). Christoph is initially irritated by Beethoven's odd and grumpy behavior, but eventually becomes fascinated with the composer's music and begins to understand the genius behind it. As Christoph spends more time with Beethoven, he learns about the composer's struggles with deafness, poverty, and loneliness. Christoph also witnesses Beethoven's creative process and how he channels his emotions and experiences into his music. Throughout the movie, Christoph and Beethoven's relationship grows and they develop a deep respect for each other. Christoph helps Beethoven to hear his music by playing it on the piano, and Beethoven inspires Christoph to pursue his own dreams of becoming a musician. In the end, Beethoven moves out of Christoph's house, but leaves him with a gift - a manuscript for his latest symphony. Christoph plays the symphony with an orchestra and realizes the beauty and power of Beethoven's music. "Beethoven Lives Upstairs" is a heartwarming and educational movie that highlights the importance of perseverance, creativity, and human connection.
