I acknowledge that Gurrumal is probably a genius and has an excellent singing voice, but I didn't find the singing or movie mesmerising. I thought the movie definitely strayed over the line into hagiography. Walked out after an hour.mesmerising. I thought the movie definitely strayed over the line into hagiography.

I am surprised at the low rating given by the critics. I thought this was an excellent movie, well produced and will messages that are still relevant. It is extremely believable. Cheney's attempts to focus on Syria, the fact Zikri was kept in jail even though the authorities knew he was innocent - compare that with the length of time people were kept locked in Guantanamo Bay for being in the wrong place at the wrong time - this movie is only too believable.
This film gave me at least the illusion of seeing into Chopin's mind. The explanations by eminent painists of why his music is so different and so outstanding was illuminating for me. The scenes accompanying the music set the scene really well.
The only film I would rate worse than Power Rangers the Movie. I walked out after an hour I then read the plot summary on Wikipedia and can't see any reason at all for why I should have stayed to the end. Unremiiting pointless endless violence. Complete deux ex machina-based plot, meaning I could see nothing I could learn from it, no lessons for humanity. I realise others like it, but to me, just plain drivel. I can't understand why it got such high critics ratings, I really can't.
