Worth the price If you love Chopin's music, you will love this rollicking send-off of 19th century Parisian cultural life. George Sand aka Aurora Dudevant was France's t favorite novelist in the first half of the19th century.
Her brazen pursuit of the frail pianistic genius, Fryderyk Chopin, was both unnerving for him and humbly satisfying for her because she so adored his music! Cultural life in those times is beautifully rendered in this film.
Judy Davis is perfect in the role of George Sand! See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. If you know who all the real-life characters are, it just about gets by; while most of the cast do their best with a script that only allows for rather two-dimensional characterisations, Judy Davis carries much of the film with a spirited, fairly convincing depiction of George Sand.
A fair and amusing period romp with some good music thrown in; worth a view on a wet night or a quiet afternoon. Thank you for your feedback.
Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. This film disappoints from the off. George Sand is unconvincing and she is probably the best depiction in it. Chopin coughs his way through the film and has a terrible phoney accent.
He is portrayed as a fainting wimp and Liszt Julian Sands is no better. If they have accents why doesn't George Sand? There is no plot. Emma Thompson flits through the film like an aborted butterfly and really there is no direction. The film is flat. Where is the passion, the romance? The film takes all its time to bring Chopin and Sand together and then ends. It says nothing of the tumultuous and passionate affair, Impromptu. This film is as exciting as a wet fish slopped around your face.
Best forgotten! I bought this early for my wife's birthday March 19but found it was for the American play zone. Out of time to replace. I didn't use it for anything -it couldn't be played. Unable to play. It wasn't made clear it came from US and therefore wouldn't be compatible with UK equipment. Company won't refund return postage so lost out. Load more international reviews. I did find film a little "slowgoing ". It was Impromptu. I very much enjoyed this movie.
It is stylish and I love the sense of humour. Hugh Grant is fabulous as wonderful, shy and super talented Chopin. A stylish and entertaining movie. Something to watch over and over again. A must for all lovers of Chopin. One person found this helpful. Well, if you LOVE him, you'll love this film, but it is quite stilted, and a bit, well Interesting story that I didn't know about, so I have become educated, but I wouldn't watch it again and have put it in the 'ebay' box!!
Mrs Cameron hurriedly lifted the loquacious imp from its impromptu perch. Without such assistance the D major section of the impromptu is insignificant.
Others sometimes came to dinner with their parents, and an impromptu dance was often got up. Jerrys imitation of a phonograph rendering a popular song of her own impromptu composition ended suddenly. See extemporaneous.
