I love the movie Shine, I don`t understand how someone could call it boring or really bad, Geoffrey is a incredible actor who did a more then marvelous job portraying Helfgott. I think the movie deserved more awards then it received. I have seen it more then 10 times and I still watch every minuet in awe.
I have seen Shine several times. I own it on VHS and play bits of it frequently. I cannot give enough praise to Mr. Rush and his portrayal of David Helfgott. It is especially endearing to me because I suffered for chronic depression for twenty years. An illness I would not wish on my worst enemy. I have been close to Mr. Helfgoff`s situation, so the movie has fact and substance to me. It is very easy to smile in the valley if you have never cried climbing the mountain. J. Mannion USA
it was boring =_=
I have seen the movie 5 times now. And everything time I see it again it moves me again. I already loved classical music, but appreciated Rachmaninov even more after seeing this movie. This year I went to Vienna, Austria to see David Helfgott playing at the Konzerthaus. This was a dream come true. And David`s concert was fabulious. Marcel (Amsterdam, Holland)
