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'!

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

Brilliant film. 

Author pix046 ( ago)
The pub landlord is a pain in the neck in this scene. First he ignorantly
scoffs at this tramp turning up to play but then suddenly looks around and
sees the potential for profits. I am surprised a git like him would have a
piano in the bar. No wonder the pianist has to check the tuning. LOL

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

with all that smoke around he seems to be really insane:)

Author p1ngu1no ( ago)
I watched last night "the King's speech" and...I just have to watch "Shine"
again. Wasn't Rachmanninoff the composer of this piece or at least what his
father used to forced him to play when he was a boy...

That was the best scene and my favorite!!!!

I saw David Helfgott play last night, and he did the Bumblebee as the 2nd
encore. I'll never forget the moment when he kicked it off!

sooo beautiful

Author tzatziki10 ( ago)
rush was a piano player in his youth so he started taking again some piano
lessons for the movie , but i am pretty sure he didn't really play this
part, cause that would make an extremely good pianist, which i think he is
not. but he must still be a great pianist , i dont think he just positioned
his hands correctly, he knows how to do it i just think he is not so
greatly skilled

Author _greyfox() ( ago)
Haha he sure will.

Author beardo52 ( ago)
Its one thing to strike the proper keys on a board, but another entirely to
make music while doing so. I can type on my keyboard here, but i'll not
produce Moby dick, or Pride, and Prejudice, nor even a cook book. The hands
are just a tool in the playing of music, as is the Piano. The heart is the
true instrument, the place where the music comes from.

Author EODChaosWo1f ( ago)
Becuase anyone could just play a song but what really needed to also be
captured was the passion his character actually puts into the music he

I have enjoyed watching the amazing David Helfgott play. He is unbelievably
divine. What a talent. The man really shines through from his playing.

Nah, it's "Sock it to us, Liberace."

At 00:45 he says ,,SORRY TO US LIBERACHI". At least i think so :D

Author Jarno Hartkamp ( ago)
his technical performance is very good, but he doesn´t PLAY the piece

Author BroadwayG ( ago)
It sounds like,"Sock it us, Liberaci" in an affected British accent. That's
my take.

Author vittorio degli innocenti ( ago)
what does he say at 00:45 ??? SACKATUA LIBERACHI
