Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley stars as Dmitri Shostakovich in this biographical drama directed by Tony Palmer, who is a composer himself. Palmer goes beyond just the music--including Shostakovich's landmark Fifth Symphony--and explores the composer's fascinating and troubled life.
Description by Kultur Films :
Testimony is one of those comparatively rare events nowadays - a real piece of cinema that has a knack of juxtaposing image and music, presenting Shoostakovich's legacy in vividly alive musical symphonies.
