Nico Rinaldi gets Dr. Matthew Heller to see his wife Silvia, born D'Alessandro, privately, about a tumor.

After an Amsterdam prep course from Dr. François Francois, who warned they'll age a lot in year, the Chicago laborer's son and Italian industrialist's daughter left for man-made hell in the tropics.

I really liked this movie, except it really took me a certain mood to get into watching it, because I knew how sad it would be. It had an older feel, like it was made more in the 70's. I enjoyed the foreign connections, how both were involved in Africa and Italy. How different their backgrounds were, and the real to life situations. It was extremely realistic.This movie was very beautifully portrayed.
But I have a question for anyone who knows the answer. The music in this movie was very moving, but especially the last song when they're playing both piano and cello together. Does anyone know the name of the song they played, or the composer? Thank you.
