Quotes

Stephanie Anderson: You know I have nothing but contempt for you. Sitting there year after year listening to miserable people like me tell you how the world does destroy them. Have you ever once felt anything like the pain they feel? All the despair, all the fear? You make your living from their suffering and you don't understand a shred of it. Anyone of us is more qualified to speak than you because we have been there. We're still there.

User Reviews

 
Extremely Dramatic, but absolutely spectacular!

Julie Andrews is positively moving in this story abotu a world-famous violinist who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (true story).Miss Andrews acts this part wonderfully. She is deep and well, exactly right for the part of Stephanie Anderson. Liam Neeson plays a merchant whom Stephanie has an affair with when her husband (Alan Bates) is on vacation. Cathryn Harrison (Best Actor winner Rex Harrison's grandaughter) plays a small role, as well. Marvelous film, deserves much praise, and if the movie doesn't deserve praise Julie Andrews most certainly does!
