Despite the fact that he is finally away from his half-crazed father, David's mental health continues to deteriorate. In one humorous scene, David goes out to get his mail - with absolutely no pants on!
Desperate to win an upcoming competition, David works night and day, practicing the difficult piano concerto, Rachmaninoff the 3rd. At the competition, he performs the piece perfectly, but then cracks up and is sent to the looney bin - literally. The rest of the movie depicts his life in the asylum - and eventually out again - and to his life as a musician today.
Following the ups and downs of David Helfgott's life becomes a strange but fascinating road. That's why I recommend this movie.
