    Listed in IMDB as Leggenda del pianista sull’oceano, La, it’s an incredible movie. I was initially thrown by the very “made for tv” titles on the opening of the film, but this is an excellent Tim Roth film. It’s a character piece, and while it’s a bit predictable and verges on turning into a musical […]
