From the title, you can expect the content. it is about the struggle of a genius as a human being not as an artist. people should know that real artist perceive the world differently, that is why they are our windows to the formless realm.

Being a gay has not affected his music creativity. when you listen to Swan lake or Romio and Juliet immediately feel the emotions and let him lead whenever he intends to.

This movies is a living proof that the source of creativity is the pure love, regardless of the sexual identity.

A very eccentric but brilliant man.
This is a docu/drama film about the life of Pytor Tchaikovsky - I would however like to have seen "The Nutcracker" Mentioned in the film-

I had to stop watching this movie after it showed him getting a BJ from his young male student. I thought this was going to be an informative documentary, but is was unbelievably repulsive focusing on his Homosexuality. Not recommended for kids or any other human.

The director assumes Tchaikovsky was homosexual and focuses on that.
Very disappointing.
