The original Chopin tale, done years later in English as "A Song to Remember"
14 October 1999 | by (Denver, Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

I was in High school in Ottawa, Canada when I saw and heard this memorable movie, at the Princess Theater on Rideau Street. As a young romantic, I was overwhelmed, and I saw it twice more. It tells about Chopin's relationship with Georges Sand, and how she pushed him to continue to compose even during the sad days of his terminal illness. The piano playing was absolutely fascinating, especially the scene where Franz Liszt sneaks in unbeknownst to Chopin, and plays another piano right behind him. During one passage, they continue to play the left hand but turn to shake hands with their right.

Paul Muni and Merle Oberon starred in the later U.S. version, called "A Song to Remember" q.v. But the original, in French and in black and white, is much more mature, and free of the usual Hollywood mush-mush.
