These were for my son, but you better have them.
It gets very, very cold in London.
Where have you been?
I missed the train.
That Prichard woman.
What is this?
Look at me.
Look at me!
And you think you can just do as you please?
I--I want to go, and you can't stop me.
I'm your father...
who has done everything for you.
You cruel, callous boy!
Mum! Margaret! Stupid! Stupid--
Leave him. Leave him! Leave him alone.
Go, go! Go!
You want to go, go!
I'll call the police!
Go! Go! Stop it!
Yeah, all right. Leave him. He's all right.
Are you all right, David?
Are you all right? Yeah?
Come on, David.
He's all right.
I'm old enough to make up my own mind.
He thinks he's going to London.
I've been accepted into the Royal College of Music.
What do you think is going to happen to you in London?
if you go...
you will never come back into this house again.
You will never be anybody's son.
The girls will lose a brother.
Is that what you want?
You want... you want to destroy your family?
大卫 如果你爱我 你就马上住手
David, if you love me, you will stop this nonsense.
You will not step out that door.
If you go,
you will be punished... for the rest of your life.
Don't make me do it!
He has the most fantastic hands.
Not connected to anything above his shoulders.
Oh, he's a bit fragile, certainly.
I've seen enough to suggest that he can make the finals in the concerto trials.
What have you seen, Cecil?
Moments of genius.
Come on, David.
Boldness of attack.
The devil, David.
Mustn't break the piano.
Liszt broke plenty of strings.
Fill in for this useless arm of mine.
The notes first.
The interpretation comes on top of them.
On top, yes. Yes.
You agree, do you?
Oh, yes. I always agree, Professor.
Is that wise?
I--I don't know. Is it?
Don't forget. It's on the page.
Yes. Well, the...the notes are on the page,
but, uh, not the feeling, the emotion.
That's what I feel.
You mustn't sacrifice everything to emotion.
It's all a question of balance.
Ah, yes. ls that the question, Professor?
Ah. I thought so. That's what I thought.
Your allowance check!
Thank you, Mr. Right.
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. I'll just stand still if you like.
Be careful, David.
Oh, by all means, Sarah. You look lovely today, Sarah.
Thank you, David.
You, too, Muriel.
Ease up, Helfgott. Sarah!
David! You missed the bank.
Pity. You'll have to wait until tomorrow.
Can't bank on the bank.
We know someone who can cash it.
Do we, Robert? What are friends for?
Got to concentrate.
Got to concentrate, Katharine. Got to practice, practice, practice,
because there's 3 important things Professor Parkes says, and that's work, work, work.
And--and, uh, so that's what I have to do...
if I'm, uh, going to make the finals to the Concerto Medal,
because the winner, which gets to play at the Royal Albert Hall,
which is right outside the window.
I--I bought a piano, Katharine.
A beautiful piano.
It's a suffering piano, like yours.
I--I wrote to Daddy,
so, uh, that's a positive. It's a positive, isn't it?
Because, well, it seems to be, because he didn't write back,
but, um, uh...
Now, how on Earth... did we manage to get into the finals, David?
You're a conductor's nightmare.
It's true, it's true.
And what are we going to do?
We're going to win, actually, Robert. We're going to win.
Rachmaninoff? Are you sure?
Uh, kind of.
I'm never really sure about anything, Mr. Parkes.
The Rach 3.
It's a mountain.
It's the hardest piece you could Everest play.
Well, no one's ever been mad enough to attempt the Rach 3.
Am l... mad enough, Professor? Am I?
Think of it as two separate melodies jousting for supremacy.
The hands, giants--
ten fingers each.
Performing's a risk, you know--
no safety net.
Make no mistake, David.
