Graceful and romantic with beautiful piano music
28 August 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is a wonderful movie for classical music lovers. I consider this film almost as a historical record of the famous pianist Ignace Paderewski's marvellous playing. There are several performances that take place during the story which will hold you spellbound.

Charles Farrell and Barbara Greene are the romantic leads and the tale revolves around the survivors of a plane crash who are guests of the aristocratic Baroness Lindenborg (Marie Tempest). There are conflicts and heartaches as it is expected in most love affairs but eventually they learn and overcome the serious challenges to their relationship.

An excellent film devoted to great music and tender romance.
