My wife recommended this, remembering it from when it was first in release. We watched it together - I howled and she cringed. Admittedly, the early sequences involving WWII were interesting. The rest of it appears like amateur night. Of course, I will never understand the "appeal" of Geraldine Chaplin, so I pass over her starring role. The film falls into a incoherent series of disconnected scenes supposedly pulled together in a stirring climax when all the different musicians unite for a performance of "Bolero" (!) to benefit UNICEF (!!). I now know why our world feels so much better than it used to... it was that UNICEF concert in Paris in 1980. Yeah! But... for a movie about musicians and the musical life - the director couldn't come up with a single really good song during the whole movie!?!?! Save yourself the trip!
