Critic Reviews for Song of Love

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The basic romance of the Schumanns has been reduced to cloying clichés and the brilliance of Brahms and his acid nature have been sloughed off for just a 'good-old-Charley' type.

March 25, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

It's typical of MGM's middle-brow mindset that the tumultuous story of the Schumanns and Brahms puts them on the level of Andy Hardy Goes Classical.

Audience Reviews for Song of Love


A predictable, but sweet romantic drama, about a composer and his wife, and a biography of composer Brahms too.
