What are some good piano movies about piano players. It does not need to really be fact but can be fiction movies as well. I will settle for any music movies new and old.

If you have anything at all post it. I am looking for inspiration. I feel I am getting ready to come to a halt so I am needing help.

Were you on the other thread that had The Legend of 1900 mentioned 20 times? If so, or not, let me mention it again.

I assume that you know the obvious ones, like "The Pianist."

How about "Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould"?

This is the first time I posted this I think??? The legend of 1900 does not ring a bell. Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould is new to me as well.

Keep them coming, even the obvious ones. I am somewhat disconnected from society. I did see the pianist though.

In the Piano Forums section there was a thread I think just last week where folks were giving their favorite piano movies, I think you'll find some good ones in there as well. If I wasn't so computer dumb, I'd post a link myself but...

There are two good movies that are not about piano but have piano bits in them. I likes "Nola" because it has Emmy Rossum in it! HOT! She plays the piano at the end. Amadause also has cool piano(harpsicord) scenes. Those are the only ones I can think of that were not mentioned before.

"Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould" is a neat documentary. Each of the films is very short (30 seconds, a minute, maybe 5 minutes at the longest).


"Shine" is very popular. It's based on fact, but also 'Hollwoodized' quite a bit.

I can't help it but I really enjoy "Great Balls of Fire". For those that don't know, its about the early life of Jerry Lee Lewis.
