SINOPSIS

In 1850, Robert Schumann is a famous musician married to the pianist and composer Clara Schuman and they have two kids. Music is his life but he cannot take his anguish to the orchestra and he suffers more and more nervous breakdowns. Clara is his main support, a talented courageous woman who plays in public her husband's creations. Clara meets Johannes Brahms in her last concert, a virtuous pianist 14 years younger. The attraction between them leads to a complicated and passionate love triangle between an unforgettable woman and two of the greatest composers of all times.
The German Helma Sanders-Brahms is the director of Clara, who is distantly related to Johanes Brahms. The project was filmed in Hungary and North Rhine Westphalia. The German actress Martina Gedeck (Mostly Martha,  The lives of others) and French actors Pascal Greggory ( The Nest, La Vie en Rose) and Malik Zidi (Changing times) take part in this great coproduction between France, Germany and Hungary.
