"We're sure you'll feel very much at home here,
"and you'll be pleased to know
"we're having the Bosendorfer tuned especially.
"We eagerly await your innement arrival--"
I wonder if they've got a Cadillac.
"and look forward to hearing you play for us.
"Kindest wishes, Simon and Basha Mickleburg."
Read it again! Read it again!
Shush! You'll wake the baby.
"You'll enjoy the company of our parakeet
"and our poodle called Margaret."
笨蛋 才不是呢！ 笨蛋
Pig! lt is not! Pig!
It is too. Enough! Enough!
Turn it off!
Give me the letter.
David is not going anywhere.
What are you looking at, you fools? He is not going to America.
I won't let anyone destroy this family!
Please, Daddy, don't.
I know, David, what is best,
because I'm your father.
I'm your father,
and this is your family!
David, come back! Come back!
I know what's best.
Close the door!
Mr. Rosen, please, it's David!
Time to get out, David. It's my turn for the bath.
Are you feeling better now?
Have you stopped shivering?
You know, a bath is always the best, David. Always the...
To shit in the bath.
To do this to me.
You disgusting animal!
I know you can hear me.
Don't do this to David.
You mustn't stop him going.
Whatever you do,
don't you dare inflict bloody Rachmaninoff on him.
He's not ready!
It's a terrible thing... to hate your father.
You know, life is cruel, but...
music, it will always... always be your friend.
Everything else... will let you down.
ln the end, everything, believe me, everything.
Don't hate me.
Life is cruel.
But you have... you have to... you have to survive.
You have to survive.
You have to survive, Daddy.
You have to survive.
No one... will love you like me.
You can't trust anyone.
But I will always... be there.
I will always be with you.
Forever and ever.
Forever and ever, Daddy.
Each time you play for me,
it expresses so completely the... inexpressible.
Is that good?
Tell me a story, Katharine.
What's the story today?
A new story.
Drops of water?
I shall treasure this till the day I die.
"To you, all these wild weeds... "and wind flowers of my life...
"l bring, my Lord, "and lay them at your feet.
"They're not frankincense or myrrh,
"but you are Krishna, Christ, and Dionysus...
"in your beauty, tenderness, and strength."
That was our final contestant David Helfgott...
with a very stirring Rachmaninoff.
Well, what a close contest we have,
with the national championship...
almost certain to go to one of the two pianists.
I dare say it's going to be difficult for the judges... to separate them,
either one a worthy winner.
The judges are now conferring.
It's a tough game, isn't it, Roger?
It's a blood sport.
Ladies and gentlemen...
I'm pleased to announce the winner...
of this year's instrumental and vocal competition.
Our new national champion is...
What was he like, Katharine?
He was forever busy in his study.
"Go away, Kattie, I'm writing," he'd always say.
One day-- oh, I was very young--
I got so annoyed...
that I upset the ink pots all over his desk...
and scrawled on his work. Pages of it.
When he saw it,
he just stood there seething with anger. I could feel it.
"What are you doing?" he shouted.
Well, there was this terrible silence...
and I just stared at him and said,
"Go away, Daddy. I'm writing."
He ran at me and he picked me up...
and he cuddled me breathless.
My first literary effort, he always called it.
David, what is it?
Royal College of Music.
Oh, David, that's marvelous.
Daddy won't cuddle me, Katharine. Oh, no.
He can't stop you, David.
He's such an angry lion, Katharine.
Oh, nonsense. He's a pussycat.
I'll miss you.
