They start to sneak around but it's not long before they realize they should be together. Soon after Abby breaks up with her boyfriend, she becomes pregnant with Edgar's child - something that was not planned. Flash forward four years. Abby is now Mrs. Edgar Hudson, a resident of Beverly Hills and the mother of two children. In turn, Edgar is now the man who has everything; vast wealth, a gorgeous wife and two beautiful children. Unfortunately, the significant changes in Abby's life have made being a pianist, her true passion, a distant memory thus making her restless and unfulfilled. Her unhappiness is all too apparent, but instead of talking about it, Edgar chooses to ignore it. Edgar tries to cheer Abby up ... Written by Independent

Title Card: In 1888 Leo Tolstoy heard a performance of Ludwig Van Beethoven's Opus 47 Duet for piano and violin in his house in Moscow. Also present were the distinguished painter Repin and the actor Andreyev-Burlak. / The music so impressed Tolstoy that he proposed that the three artists should create works inspired by the music to be presented together. / Only Tolstoy completed his part of the bargain.

Interesting but Ineptly Directed
26 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Beethoven's masterful "Kreutzer" Violin Sonata inspired Tolstoy to write a short story of the same name. Incidentally, the short story inspired Leos Janacek to write a string quartet that is also nicknamed "Kreutzer Sonata." Although the setting of the story has been changed from the 19th century to contemporary time, the essence of Tolstoy remains. The presentation is initially muddled, but turns into a fairly interesting story about jealousy. What keeps this from being a better film is the inept direction. Director Rose did the cinematography as well and he unfortunately chose to use a hand-held camera throughout for no good reason. It is extremely distracting.
