Savage Messiah: Ken Russell > Savage Messiah: Ken Russell

Chichester festival


Iain Fisher:
The Music Lovers, Ken Russell's film about Tchaikovsky, will be shown at the Chichester Film Festival on 12 and 22 Aug 2023.

The festival guide is pretty grudging "However rife with inaccuracies... Unless you are seeking the whole truth".  Is it less accurate than Bernard Rose's The Beethoven Secret or Milos Foreman's Amadeus?   I have quoted from Barbara von Meck's 1893 letter to show how closely the script follows her account of her relationship with Tchaikovsky.
