The Legend of 1900
I had let my ironing pile up for two months and yesterday was sooooooooo hot that I decided to stay inside and iron, so picked a Netflix Movie that I could watch NOW and chose a WINNER!
Raised aboard an ocean liner after being abandoned there as an infant, 1900 (Tim Roth) becomes a virtuoso piano player who learns about the outside world only through interactions with passengers, never setting foot on land, even for the love of his life. Years later, the ship may be destroyed, and a former band member fears that 1900 may still be aboard, willing to go down with the ship in this compelling drama from director Giuseppe Tornatore.
I addition to some of the best piano /trumpet jazz I've heard in a long time the movie was a "can't take your eyes off" from the beginning. It had it all. Wonderful music, a hauntingly good looking man, a baby, and it knew how from "Hello" to tug at a woman's heart strings. I cried at the end, but it doesn't take a lot to make me cry anyway, but though I cried I still somehow could relate to the ending, and while sad on one hand, I understood.
If you want something a little different and thought provoking, take a chance on The Legend of 1900. Besides enjoying a good flick you'll have a closet full of freshly ironed duds.
Hope all of y'all have a wonderful Sunday!
