" Die blinde Klaviervirtuosin Maria Theresia Paradis (1759-1824), die von der Wiener Gesellschaft als Wunderkind vergöttert wird, unterzieht sich 1777 einer mehrmonatigen Behandlung bei einem umstrittenen Mediziner, wodurch sie ansatzweise wieder sehen kann. Doch als die visuellen Reize ihre musikalische Perfektion zu beeinträchtigen drohen, ringt sie sich zu einer einsamen Entscheidung durch. Der mit Rokoko-Reizen nicht geizende Kostümfilm entfaltet eine bittere Emanzipationsgeschichte, in der die Hoffnung auf ein Leben ohne Zwang und Behinderung nur um den Preis der Bedeutungslosigkeit zu haben ist. Der in der Hauptrolle großartig gespielte Film vermag seine mal lakonisch, mal mit beißenden Seitenhieben inszenierte Kritik an der höfischen Welt augenzwinkernd auch auf die Gegenwart zu beziehen."

"Kurt's in his early 30s, a slacker, a good-for-nothing, and an inveterate gambler. His main occupation in life is borrowing money and losing it in the casino. Having blown all his cash again, he suddenly hits upon the winning idea: let a roll of the dice decide what to do! Six choices. Six chances. A system, a structure, not just at the roulette table, but in everyday life. A deceptive guide to truth and happiness... And indeed, luck does seem to be on his side now, especially when he meets the feisty, full-bodied, pill-popping Tanja, who eagerly joins him on his wild and unpredictable spin through life. It's only when they hit rock bottom that Kurt finally becomes aware of what life--and Tanja--really mean to him. As it dawns on him that he may have fallen in love with her, he begins to rebel against the arbitrariness of the die. But their passion has taken them too far now. And the game has to be played to the end..."--Bavarian Film International website
