IN the movie Shine, which was a story about David Helfgott. There was this scene where he walks into this pub and starts playing the flight of the bumblebee, astonishing everyone in the display of skill. And of course, there is the music piece most referred to in the movie - Piano Concerto no.3 (Allegro ma non tanto) by Rachmaninov. You know, the one where he just collapsed after playing it? I was actually wondering if the actor (Geoffrey Rush) knew how to play the instrument, for the simple fact that it was really convincing.
