Storyline

Joseph, a former professional musician who has withdrawn into a quiet life after the death of his wife. Remaining mostly isolated, he stays at home, playing his violin in the evenings for entertainment. This routine is disrupted, however, when he witnesses a violent fight between his neighbor, Eddie, and his girlfriend Charlotte. He takes an interest in her, eventually taking her in when he learns that she has no place to stay. The gentle Kopple possesses a traditional, European restraint, while she is tough and jaded. Nevertheless, the two soon become close companions, sharing their pain and finding unexpected solace in each other. Written by lament

WELL ACTED SLOW DRAMA
19 June 2001 | by steelsliderSee all my reviews

No car chases or crashes.

Limited sexual content could be deleted and the picture would not suffer.

Extremely well acted by the male lead, please note he was also cast in the Original "Jacob the Liar", a Cz film of the mid 70's only remade after the enormous popularity of "Life Is Beautiful"[almost identical storylines].

See this movie if you have the opportunity!
