The original Chopin tale, done years later in English as "A Song to Remember", 14 October 1999
Author: Sholom Pearlman (email@example.com) from Denver, Colorado, USA
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.
