Winterreise: A unique dramatisation of Schubert's terrifying and deeply moving portrayal of human desolation. Studio sets, actors, costumes and props lend the song cycle a new close-up dynamism, extend its interpreative possibilities and uncover fresh allusion and meaning. Over The Top With Franz illuminates the difficulties of bringing Winterreise to the screen. Focusing on the developing relationships of the artists, from first rehearsal to final day of filming, this is a rare and humorous insight into the collaborative process.
