Switzerland's official 2006 Academy Awards® entry, official selection of the Berlin Film Festival, and winner of the AFI Film Festival Audience Award, Vitus is the story of a child prodigy who has everything he wants -- except the chance to be a normal kid. At six, Vitus is both incredibly talented and wonderfully precocious. When it becomes evident that he has an exceptionally high IQ and can play piano like a young Mozart, expectations run high. His parents love him, his grandfather understands him, but no one knows the truth -- that his real genius is in his heart.
