I may get a lashing for this, but I liked that movie! I remember watching it for the first time when my kids were just babies. I didn't have time in those days to play much piano (or do anything else, for that matter), and this movie was exactly the kind of movie I liked. I think Hugh Grant made a good Chopin and I agree that Julian Sands was a good Liszt. Bernadette Peters was good and so was Emma Thompson - so actually they all were - guess you can tell that I still do like this movie (I bought the VHS
). I know there are some inaccuracies and so forth, but oh well...it's a nice way for me to escape things. And it's better than the other two Chopin movies I have: "A Song to Remember," and "Desire for Love."
