      Francois Truffaut Arts (France) The dullness of Rhapsody leads one to think that Charles Vidor only gave his signature to the pleasant movie Gilda, with cameraman Rudy Mate probably being the real auteur. May 10, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Well-played, well-reproduced Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff concert favorites are sound-track assets in a plushy romantic soap opera, much of it quite tedious to my taste... Dec 16, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Tedious soap opera story filled with classical music. Rated: C Aug 18, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The best romance movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Glossy MGM soap opera in Technicolor, is easy on the eyes and features several classical music interludes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member good high gloss soaper but no douglas sirk Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member You will LOVE this movie if you like classical music but if you dont then dont bother because you will probably get bored through the musical scenes. I however LOVED it =D Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Average bit of melodrama. Louis Calhern brightens up the scenes he's in. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review ashley h I think this was a good film. While others have complained that the story is mediocre, I found Elizabeth Taylor's subtle eye movements and facial expressions intriguing, and the story changed enough that it kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Vittorio Gassman and John Ericson played their instruments so lifelike you almost thought they were playing them. Louis Calhern provided a sophisticated performance as her distanced dad. In fact, I thought that the music was not as exceptional as the acting, although the selections were chosen to show off the virtuosity of the performers rather than for their beautiful melodies. The actors were impressive in their roles and should have received more awards than they did for their consummate collaboration.
