This haunting Australian film from 1996 is based on the life of pianist David Helfgott, who suffered a mental breakdown and receives electric shock therapy. After entering a piano competition and deciding to playing Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3, David becomes increasingly manic as he practises, eventually resulting in his admission to a psychiatric hospital.
