    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.

    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.

    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 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.

      But there is a difference with holding a sigarette in your mouth and actually take a few sips from it whilst playing. The latter I did not see him do.

    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.

      Always loved Rush's performance in this film, he was really great BUT I was always even more impressed by Noah Taylor playing Helfgott in his teens, he's such an underappreciated actor. Excellent in Game of Thrones!

    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.

    • lygophile
      lygophile 1 year ago

      yeah ok we got it. he is playing it, at least to some degree, but we're hearing someone else, while the crowd pretends he nailed it.

    • Magnus Haukaas
      Magnus Haukaas 1 year ago

      +lygophile If you look closely, you can actually see that he is kinda faking it or maybe failing a bit sometimes. It's originally played by the real David Helfgott and added on to the footage. But i read in the trivia of the film at IMDB that Geoffrey Rush actually had to learn this piece to play this role in the movie, so he is kinda playing it the right way still

    • lygophile
      lygophile 1 year ago

      +Bob Dole that's because he's not faking it; he actually plays it. possibly not in one take, though.

    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.

    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.

      Bobbnoxious 2 years ago

      I read somewhere that Rush had piano lessons until age 12, when he gave it up, then resumed them once he got this part. That would've made "faking" the fingering easier for him than an actor unfamiliar with the piano (like Tom Hulce as Mozart in "Amadeus").

      No sir, he did not actually play it, but he practiced "faking" it so much that you can't really tell the difference. 

  • Shannon Ong

    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.
