Storyline

1930 - California. People flock here in the hope of seeking fame and fortune. This is the place where dreams come true. Behind the stylish art deco shutters of a Pasadena home, Magdalene struggles with her piano. The keys, which once responded so willingly to her touch, are now cold. Magdalene has trapped herself in a lifeless marriage, caged in a sumptuous world in which she is rootless. Through her own choices, she has been pushed to the side of her own life - in abandoning her music, she has lost the better part of herself. Death is her only hope. But a last breath of life knocks on her front door in the unexpected form of a door-to-door salesman. Miron is unaware that in stepping over the threshold, he is playing a part in Magdalene's greatest hour of despair. The night's tune will stir them in a way that will alter the course of their lives. Written by Rebecca Cremona

Beautiful
11 August 2009 | by mermathSee all my reviews

I found this film to be absolutely beautifully shot and executed - I truly enjoyed it. I do wish the end was more clear, with more resolution and closure, but I was sort of spellbound the entire time by the sheer beauty and emotion of every moment. The acting was superb, the shots were luminescent and just gorgeous - you really feel like you're back in the 1930's, and in this woman's quiet, desperate, yet beautiful world. And the acting moments between the two main actors all landed just right, with a sense of realism. I wished it had continued, I wanted to know more of the developing relationship between them. Bravo!
