Trivia

Moles, investigating the source of a musical piece, intones: "di-di-di-daah" into a microphone attached to a computer. This intonation is of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. (Opus 67) - namely, the distinctive opening four-note motif of short-short-short-long notes. See more »

One of my all time favorites.
17 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

My first boyfriend took me out to this movie. The music is the best part. I still have the album on vinyl. I love most anything with the cello being a cellist myself. I was also really in to Boy George in the '80s. The story is really sweet too.
