Quotes

Paul: The classical music market is a lot like the wine market. It survives by creating the illusion of meaningful diversity. There will always be a demand for the opportunity to distinguish oneself by pretending to see a world where others see nothing.
Helen Morrison: Sometimes there really is a world.
Paul: Well, the fact that you perceive a difference doesn't necessarily make that difference meaningful.

Ah, German composers

I enjoyed this immensely. Piano sonatas, concertos and etudes throughout left me both satisfied and wanting more. What a pleasure to be introduced to Serhiy Salov. Exquisite technique remaniscant of Horowitz. I'm very glad to now know of him. Patrick Stewart is well cast and delivers a memorable performance. I admit I am a fan and cannot get enough of him. Katie Holmes has matured into a beautiful woman. Her character and performance is heart warming. Giancarlo Esposito is wonderful and Ihis pep talk for his struggling client touches on a truth for most of us. The location, soundtrack, plot and pace is perfect for a rainy afternoon with a fire and some Earl Grey. Getting into the pace and the soundtrack is big with this movie. If I were wound up or preoccupied, this review would not have been so glowing. Director Claude Lalonde and writer Louis Godbout triumphed.
