A splendid, gentle movie
17 December 2006 | by brandewynSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1980, and finally managed to buy a copy in the early 2000s. The soundtrack is utterly beautiful, especially the Children's Song. I think this is where I first became a fan of Amy Irving's, and have never changed my mind about this movie. The deaf dancer who teaches deaf children, and the musician who falls in love with her; his support to help her follow her dream; the typical dramas and hardships before they can declare their love --- maybe your everyday love story, but still so sweet, so lovely! The theme song stays with you for a long, long time. Burton Cummings and Jimmy Webb - two names who helped create the music.
