Cultural life in those times is beautifully rendered in this film. Video availability outside of United States varies. The movie belongs to the same genre as "Gothic" and "Haunted Summer," which were both movies about that extraordinary house party at which Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and others played musical beds while Mary wrote Frankenstein.

It's sharp and the colors are vivid enough, but while watching it, I was thinking that it did not look as impressive as other Blu-Rays I've seen, more like a very fine looking DVD than Blu-Ray. If you love Chopin's music, you will love this rollicking send-off of 19th century Parisian cultural life. This was hilarious! It comes from a place of giving historical information with the proverbial spoon full of sugar. Chopin coughs his way through the film and has a terrible phoney accent. An amazing cast features Judy Davis as Sand, Hugh Grant as the awkward & gifted Chopin, Julian Sand as a fiery Franz List, with Bernadette Peters as his manipulative mistress Marie D'Agoult; Mandy as Sand's former lover, writer/poet Alfred de Musset, Ralph Brown as lady's man artist Eugene Delacroix, and a Emma Thompson as a young duchess hoping to import Paris into her country drawing room in an ill-fated and hilarious weekend. Good film and the music, of course, sublime. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote. Chopin is played by Hugh Grant, who actually does it well enough since this is a rather young Chopin. Artists are artists with all their quirks; so are artist's children.
The Movie divides itself naturally into two parts. A must for all lovers of Chopin. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 24, 2012 This is one of my favorite films ever! Perhaps most people already know this, but because it's really hard to imagine a comedy in which one of the major characters is Frederic Chopin let's get that straight from the beginning.

I didn't use it for anything -it couldn't be played. OK, if you don't like classical music you'll still like this film! The film was shot entirely on location in France as a British production by an American company. 1830s Paris. Mr. Grant plays him dandyish and proper but not effete, though being Hugh Grant he always looks much too healthy to be the delicate composer. It wasn't made clear it came from US and therefore wouldn't be compatible with UK equipment. Great cast and a VERY imaginative way of retelling history. The cast is unbelievable, and every performance is top notch. Writer Sarah Kernochan captures Sand's fiercely independent spirit with humor and charm.
After being advised to stay away from Chopin, Sand shows up at a party he is attending and observes his fragile health. Novelist George Sand, who is known to be writing her memoirs, is causing a sensation in the literary scene not only for the quality of her Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 21, 2015 Unable to play.

Something to watch over and over again. Her brazen pursuit of the frail pianistic genius, Fryderyk Chopin, was both unnerving for him and humbly satisfying for her because she so adored his music! Not what I expected. Interesting story that I didn't know about, so I have become educated, but I wouldn't watch it again and have put it in the 'ebay' box!! The focus is the pursuit of Chopin by noted French author George Sand, played with remarkable intensity by Judy Davis, a performance that lifts the whole film from the trifle it otherwise might have been. The Blu-Ray release looks ok. Impromptu is a 1991 British-American period drama film directed by James Lapine, written by Sarah Kernochan, produced by Daniel A. Sherkow and Stuart Oken, and starring Hugh Grant as Frédéric Chopin and Judy Davis as George Sand. Apparently a lot of types of artists that belong to a team :-) Being kind is also just as important as being revolutionary.
Company won't refund return postage so lost out. The film takes all its time to bring Chopin and Sand together and then ends. The film is flat. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote.

Great movie, with lots of symbolism, and if you think of our current climate, with terrorism perpetrated by school children, I find this older movie interestingly premonitory.
