Based on the true story of Australian pianist David Helfgott, this delightful movie charts the traumatic early years through adulthood. Telling the story in flashback we see David as a child prodigy and as he grows up while his patriarchal father abuses him and his siblings with the memory of his childhood in Europe and the loss of his family in the concentration camps. David finally breaks away from his father and goes away to study overseas, he later suffers a breakdown and returns to Australia and a life in an institution. Many years later he is released and through several twists of fate (in reality even more unlikely than film portrays) he starts playing a piano in a bar before finally returning to the concert hall. - IMDb

Безрадостное детство под властью деспотичного отца. Юность, полная надежд и разочарований. Учеба в лучшей музыкальной школе мира, первые успехи и, наконец, всемирная слава. Вот лишь некоторые страницы из жизни одного из лучших пианистов современности Дэвида Хэлфготта, который прошел через тяжелые лишения и титанический труд, чтобы достичь вершин своего мастерства.
