Tchaikovsky: Confessions of a Composer
Smooth/Arts  |  January 13, 2019

Based on Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's diaries and letters, director Ralf Pleger discovers an entirely new side and sketches an entirely different profile of the man whose mind and talent brought us Swan Lake. The film focuses on what it meant for Tchaikovsky, a homosexual man, to have to live his life in a homophobic environment - considerations that are all the more relevant and topical in light of recent developments in Putin's Russia.
