Review by Kim (posted on 17-Dec-2007)

A beautiful movie. I found my self getting quite attached to the main character, 1900 {Tim Roth} Who was found as a baby and raised by a cruise ship worker. His education is virtually non existent and he spends his life alone and below deck out of site. He takes to learning the piano and his talent is remarkable. He winds up been entertainment for the passengers of the ship that he has never stepped foot off. Word spreads about his talent as a piano player and is soon befriended by a washed up jazz player called Max {Pruitt Taylor Vince} His music comes from his heart and he "feels it" watching and studying the passengers over the many years the Ship was in service. A movie well worth watching.
