The Music Lovers changing attitudes

Nice to see some reviewers writing honestly rather than the usual cliches.  In a review of Kirill Serebrennikov's film Tchaikovsky's Wife the review lists other films on Tchaikovsky.

"Those seeking a relatively conventional telling of the story can always seek out Ken Russell’s florid 1970 offering The Music Lovers, where Glenda Jackson’s full-on performance as the ill-fated spouse outshines Richard Chamberlain's creditable turn as Tchaikovsky."

A nice contrast with the usual reviews "so filled with wretched excesses that one hardly knows where to begin" and "bearing a vague resemblance to, Tchaikovsky, his life and times".

The review of Tchaikovsky's Wife is by Trevor Johnston, Time Out, 23 Dec 2023.  For the full review click here
