Trivia

The film was critically successful at the Cannes Film Festival in 2002, but Stephen Sondheim personally stopped the film from being screened at the Edinburgh Film Festival, reportedly because he objected to his music being used. The film was subsequently never released in cinemas. See more »

The Music
28 August 2006 | by stuartdjSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this BBC Films production very much. It was reported in the press in the United Kingdom that the film was due a cinema release. However, it was alleged in those newspapers that the necessary permission had not been given to use the music in a cinema release (or could not in some other way be secured at the right price). Thus it was shown on British television (on BBC 2) since those rights had been obtained or were so covered by one of a number of agreements the BBC has with organisations representing music composers and lyricists.

One of the talents who made the film was reported to have said that this is the trouble with using music from a living composer.

It seems that, as a result, it has not been submitted to the British Board of Film Classification for release in the United Kingdom and it appears at the moment unlikely.
