This paper explains that the movie "Immortal Beloved" is an attempt to summarize Beethoven's life and give an in-depth look at his identity and struggles; furthermore, this film is an attempt to solve the riddle of Beethoven's most meaningful love affair. The author concludes that, even though this film is not an exact historical representation of the composer, it gives a rather accurate portrayal of Beethoven. The paper states that the film depicts rather accurately Beethoven's response to deafness, his relationship with his nephew and his attempts to guess the identify of the "Immortal Beloved" but she was not identified correctly.
From the Paper:"The identity revealed in the movie of the "Immoral Beloved," is one that is historically questionable. There is no single truth of the hidden identity of the "Immoral Beloved." Even though some believe that Johanna could not have been his "Immortal Beloved", no one can say for sure. Many speculate who the "Immortal Beloved" really was, but no one can yet prove it. Also, the conception of Johanna bearing his child, and it being his child he was supposedly taking care of instead of his nephew, is a position that is very hard to prove. Much of Beethoven's life remains a mystery."
