Audio/visual unsynchronized: In one scene, as Narcisco plays the piano, one shot shows his hands working upwards on the keys (left to right) while the piano music that is heard clearly moves lower and lower in tone, which could only be accomplished by playing the keys right to left. The next shot finishes the musical phrase correctly.See more »

Larry:Señora Lunchinski, forgive me for writing to you when we do not know each other. Like so many people who live on this island, I came from another country to find a new beginning.

Liked this movie, 21 January 2008
Author: jinty-reid from Canada

Actually, I really liked this movie. It was funny and sad and it kept me hooked right to the end. It made one wonder what if we were all put on an island and had to live close together with all our quirks and idiosyncrases exposed. Many of the characters had chosen this Spanish island to either hide or work out their pain or unresolved issues except perhaps the wife of the composer who it appeared was Spanish. I agree with the other commenter, no one in the movie was worried about the priceless piano getting wet except me and the commenter! I feel that the characters were quirky enough to keep one's interest and lots of subplots to make it more interesting. All in all I think this was a good movie.
