Nannerl, la sœur de Mozart (120 minutes, French with English subtitles) 


     While on a royal court tour of Europe, 14-year-old Nannerl dutifully accompanies young Wolfy on harpsichord, but chafes at being left out of papa Mozart’s composition lessons, or being forbidden to play her beloved violin anymore. Only newly sparked friendships with Louis XV’s abbey-cloistered daughter and, separately, his eccentrically mannered widower son the Dauphin, give Nannerl a taste of an unheard-of world in which her charms and talents might be fostered independently.  Directed by René Férat.  (Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times)   Presented by Prof. Elizabeth Anthony, Dept. of Romance Languages
