Mozart's music in the movies
Jack Nicholson plays Robert Dupea, a once promising middle-class concert pianist who gave up tinkling the ivories along with the comforts of his well off family to work in the oil fields. Forced to return home to confront his cosy past, Dupea unexpectantly finds love with a concert pianist. The ‘five easy pieces’ of the title refer to piano works; along with Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major and his Fantasy in D minor we hear pieces by Chopin and Bach.
