in order to be irreplaceable one must be different..

Author Alfredo Cuauhtémoc Pérez ( ago)
La magia cabe en cualquier recipiente, ínfimo, colosal; lujoso, hecho de harapos. No hay una regla o una predicción para saber quien la tendrá y con ella cautivará al mundo. Un vagabundo, un millonario racista, una mujer muy atractiva o una siempre enfermiza; cualquiera en cualquier rincón del orbe puede ser bendecido con una habilidad y luego tener la constancia para perfeccionarla y un buen día, cegar a quien lo miraba receloso,burlón e indiferente.
La siguiente es una escena que me fascina, habla de un loco que tiene magia en las manos. Una escena que pertenece a una película muy afamada en los oscares hace varios años.

Moral of this scene is simply: Don't judge a book by its cover.

Best scene!

There are not 5 actors today with the range of Rush, truly one of our finest actors I loved him in Elizabeth, he was fiendishly good there. Here he made me very sad, how could a father snuff out the genius of his child. Or attempt to. Great performances all around in this very good movie.

Author Jorge Dibildox ( ago)
He looks a little like Ray Manzarek in this scene.

That's a hard song to play.

Apparently, he smokes so that he feels so high while playing piano. I'm going to do that later on.

even though this may not have really happened like this, I just love seeing that prick get put in place and walk away in shame.

Author Juana Sánchez ( ago)
Shine nos habla de la vida de David Helfgott y cómo se vio marcado por su historia familiar y la obsesión por la música. Puede que esta escena no sea la más representativa, pero sí nos da una idea de en qué se convirtieron gran parte de sus años adultos tras sufrir un colapso nervioso.

i like how the bully leaves. the best way to beat up a bully, a piano. lol.


Author Robert Bateman ( ago)
I consider this to be one of the best scenes in film not to mention one of the greatest films of all time, no matter how many times I watch it. Pure Karma shown in all it's glory.
Rush was outstanding here and deserved the Oscar for leading actor that year. He absolutely nailed Helfgott's mannerisms.

Author Dramawind ( ago)
Can somebody explain what that guy said at 0:30 - 0:46? I can't understand no matter how many times I listen to it...

Edit: Okay, some people already explained it, thanks.

I knew a bloke like that who would run around kissing everyone, then one day i saw him with his face smashed up real bad, black bruises and cuts. Someone took him the wrong way and beat him real bad. Very sad.

is flight of the bumblebee difficult?

Author RussianCommissar ( ago)
It's one thing to play Flight of the Bumblebee, It's quite another to play it while smoking.

Author Deniz Erdogan ( ago)
David Helfgott just played in Izmir tonight and he was such a pleasure to be around. Geoffrey Rush couldn't have acted better, David is exactly the sweetie pie you see at the movie. He runs around kissing everyone during the applouse, sings along while he plays (sings a totally different tune though), he's such a lovely man.

See how they go from deriding him and treating him like dirt to accepting him once they know he has talent (apart from the kind lady). How I loathe fair-weather 'friends'!

Author Bob Dole ( ago)
Need to buy this film, I love the story for all its tragic humor, but it's rare that a movie about a pianist has somebody who can fake the hand motions well enough to fit what they're supposed to be playing. Rush is superb.

Author Mat San ( ago)
haha i love how the bar asshole is played by that actor.

Brilliant film.

Author OzzieBloke ( ago)
I had the great pleasure of hearing Helfgott play live at a small country town recital in Merredin decades ago.  Humble and talented.

I also hate Flight of the Bumblebee.  Took me three years to master it, my right hand ached after finally getting it right, played it once for a concert, then never played it again.  Ever.

Author Mike Fuller ( ago)
It makes you laugh, he's a professional concert pianist and they think he is thick!!! How clever do you want!!! I think the first little thing he played was a piano scale or scales.

         Cheers -  Mike

Geoffrey Rush actually played it?

Author Shannon Ong ( ago)
he did 3 things at the same time.
1) both hands on keyboard playing flight of the bumblebee.
2) smoking constantly.
3) looking around his surrounding to see his audience/ bastard.

Author tommyt1971 ( ago)
Still my favorite scene in the movie. It has a great silent energy about it b/c the people in the bar are transfixed on his playing.

Author Don Juan Contreras ( ago)
Ah, mighty fine smokable...Flight of the Bumblebee!
