What is your favorite piano film?

When I was learning how to play the piano, I would watch just about any movie that had any piano in it. Even if it wasn’t the main theme of the movie, I would love to see a scene where it was featured and I am even guilty of trying to figure out if the actor actually knew how to play! Sadly, I have come to realize that most often than not, most actors are not pianists and merely do their best to fake it. It’s okay, we’ll forgive them.

I am the first to admit that I am a little biased when it comes to this question because Amadeus has been one of my favorite films of all time and I probably don’t give new movies a fair shot. Now Amadeus is not specifically a piano movie but there are some amazing scenes where Mozart is playing the piano and many period instruments within the movie that give the piano a special place within the film.

There are many other fine films that involve the piano as a central theme. Movies like The Pianist, The Piano and The Legend of 1900. So my question to you today is what is your favorite film with the piano as a central theme? I am hoping to hear of a few titles that we’ve have never heard of so we could all get to experience some new films that feature our favorite instrument.
