  1. Riccardo's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    "It's impossible to understand. It's one of those things that it's probably better not to think about because it makes you nuts. A painting's fall. When you wake up one morning and discover you don't love her anymore. When you open a newspaper and read that war is broken out. When you see a train and you think: 'I gotta leave this place'. When you look in the mirror and realise you are old."

  3. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    If you live in a tiny box, it is very difficult to think beyond. The fear of the change, the scare of the new & the different, the only orientation to the past & known, the self-imposed limitation. I guess these are the elements, Mr. Tornatore wanted to visualise. Mr. Roth, he is a fine actor, but not 'the character' for this. The story-line is slant & unplausible (follow the girl!!). The last third is boring.

  4. Zoe Ormonde's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    "Take a piano. The keys begin, the keys end. You know there are 88 of them and no-one can tell you differently. They are not infinite, you are infinite.... But you get me up on that gangway and roll out a keyboard with millions of keys, and that's the truth, there's no end to them, that keyboard is infinite. But if that keyboard is infinite there's no music you can play."

  5. Star Lord's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano. Bel film.

  6. sacajawèale's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    Ho visto solo la scena della sfida al piano. Abbastanza.

  8. Algitya's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    Tornatore's Best / Underrated?

  9. willythesalesman's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    I wanted to like this film so bad, but I couldn't.

  10. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    The movie never really comes together, it has a strong concept, an epic scope, and rich themes, but the execution is all over the place and it lacks the emotional punch that some of Tornatore's other films have. The soundtrack is one of Morricone's best, however.

  11. goeienag's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    It upsets me that it took me so long to finally see this film. Nautical cinema at its best. The piano-gliding scene...breathtaking.

  12. NocS_Raven's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    Uno dei migliori film mai visti

  13. Tigrão's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    The short story was beautiful, and the film is masterfully adapted with glorious old-fashioned atmosphere.

  14. Sunday filmmaker's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    The music is epic and the story has something very special about it. Love it!

  15. Seth Farmer's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    The transition from theater monologue to film works better in some places than others, but a good movie with a great score.

  16. Bea Farkas's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    This film left me speechless. One of the best.

  17. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Legend of 1900

    The kind of gem Frank Capra would direct. Tornatore brings a bittersweet fable, with an immense Tim Roth and a magnificent soundtrack by il maestro Ennio Morricone. don't miss the duel between 1900 and Jelly Roll Morton
