Shannah Laumeister's unconventional 2011 documentary turns its lens onto her muse-mentor relationship with Bert Stern, following his rise to fame as the first photographer to become a celebrity in his own right. Stern may be best known for The Last Sitting, his 1962 Vogue session with Marilyn Monroe just before her death, and for his fashion portraits of stars like Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor, but his striking images also helped frame Madison Avenue's modern-advertising aesthetic.

This film provided insight into the character and talent of Mozart's Sister. Filmed in the natural light it was an artistic and musically moving portrait. A bit slow with a need for concentration, it deserves to be seen

Quotes & Highlights
- "A beguiling celebration ... a special pleasure." -Wall Street Journal
- "Romantic and engaging, with lush musical detail throughout." --Film Comment
- "Marie Feret is luminous!" --Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
- "Gorgeous, with candlelit shots looking like old master paintings - a fine match for music that takes your breath away." --NPR
- "Lively, fascinating ... Feminist without the arrogance of 20-20 hindsight, vividly precise in its depiction of 18th-century pre-revolutionary France, alive with exuberantly thesped personages and awash in the joy and power of music, the pic is a stunner. A treat for classical music lovers and cinephiles alike." --Variety
A speculative account of Maria Anna “Nannerl” Mozart (Marie Feret), five years older than Wolfgang (David Moreau) and a musical prodigy in her own right. Originally the featured performer, she has given way to Wolfgang as the main attraction, as their strict but loving father Leopold (Marc Barbe) tours his talented offspring in front of the royal courts of pre-French Revolution Europe. Approaching marriageable age and now forbidden to play the violin or compose, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed on her gender. But a friendship with the son and daughter of Louis XV offers an alternative.
