Spirited playful and outrageous, this captivating romantic comedy celebrates brazen, controversial 19th Century feminist author George Sand and the unlikely object of her desire: well-mannered composer Frederic Chopin. Boasting an impressive cast including Judy Davis, Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson, Impromptu is delightful, lively and saucy! Bohemian provocateur Sand is setting Paris ablaze by wearing men's clothing and taking a long line of lovers! But when she first hears the heavenly music of Chopin she vows to stop at nothing - including transforming herself - to capture the heart of the fragile, shy and painfully straight-laced musician! Will this love song ultimately crescendo....or will it become one of history's greatest unfinished symphonies?
Fine cast, but basically rather silly, anachronistic film. However if you are interested in Hugh Grant, his performance as Chopin is worth a look - chilly, remote, upright - thought it was quite impressive.
