Watched with my husband and then my 10 year old daughter. Nice to see mature adults enjoying what is often thought of as a rigorous and painful childhood ritual of learning and developing their piano skills. Their passion was lovely to see. My daughter really loved it as well!

wonderful documentary about Van Cliburn piano competition for amateur players. excellent playing and although competitive, not the hard edge you see and feel in a professional competition. interesting stories of the motivations and dedication of the entrants.
