Now I've another question ... I figure Zeldah might be able to answer this one \:\)

Yesterday, I played Prelude in C Minor from WTC Book II for a friend of mine. She swears it came from a movie she saw many years ago but couldn't say what the title of the movie was. If anyone knows which movie it appeared in (just as a little snippet; the whole thing wasn't played) then my friend would be very much appreciative (and so would I \:\) )

Thanks!

Ah!
I can't answer.
The only movie I've seen it appear in is
"32 Short Films About Glenn Gould".
But duh, most of the music in that is Bach. =0)
_________________________
Glenn Gould in regards to music:

The problem begins when one forgets the artificiality of it all, when one neglects to pay homage to those designations that to our minds-to our reflect senses, perhaps-make of music an analyzable commodity. The trouble begins when we start to become so impressed by the strategies of ours systematized thought that we forget that it does relate to an obverse, that it is hewn from negation, that it is but a very small security against the void of negation which surrounds it.

Ask her if she's thinking of "Chasing Amy."

Never saw Chasing Amy, but I could swear it's been used in a commercial or two.

Just my $.02

Hi all -

Sorry to bring back this old thread from the dead but ... the film my friend had in mind was an Australian film called "A Town Like Alice" which came out in 1981. Here's a link to the Internet Movie Database, just in case anyone is interested:
http://us.imdb.com/Title?0081949

(I hope the link above works ...)
