Synopsis

Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich is the subject of this film about his life by Tony Palmer. Shostsakovich's intensely dramatic music fully matched Palmer's own characteristically dynamic and expressive style. Central to the film is the relationship between Shostakovitch and Stalin, and the terrible price which Shostakovitch paid for his survival. Ben Kingsley stars as the composer.
