Trivia:
Alan Rickman had cello lessons, and handles the right (bowing) hand, but the left hand is provided by a real cellist standing behind him with his arm through Alan Rickman's armpit. Juliet Stevenson does play her piano part however.See more »
Quotes:
Nina:Tell me about the first night we spent together.
Jamie:Why? Seriously? You want me to?
Nina:[nods] What did we do?
Jamie:We talked.
Nina:What else?
Jamie:Well, talking was the major component. You played that piano. Then I played, then we both played... something - duet - something... can't remember. And then you danced for about three hours, until I fell asleep. But you were fantastic. And then we had some corn flakes. And when we kissed, which was about 11 o'clock the following morning, we were trembling so much we couldn't take off our clothes.

Wow!!, 12 February 2007
Author: John Mitchell from Godalming, Surrey

Now, I like a weepy, I'm not ashamed to admit it. I actively seek out those films that are most likely to make me cry. However, more often than not, I end up disappointed because usually this type of film is either wildly melodramatic or painfully sentimental.

That's what I was expecting from this, to tell the truth. A woman overcome with grief at the death of her boyfriend? Give me a break!... I was in floods by the end, and promptly watched it again.

This film is testament to how well us Brits can do when we put our minds to it. It's charming, funny, warm and absolutely heart-breaking. All the performances are grouped under an umbrella label 'very good', with one notable exception: that of Juliet Stevenson as Nina. She is magnificent, and is, at times unbearable to watch. I'm still absolutely astonished at her performance. This is a woman who has had her heart and soul ripped out I love this film. I'm getting a lump in my throat just thinking about it. It's wonderful! (Blub! *Sniff*)
