The fact that David Helfgott lived the outlines of these events--that he triumphed, that he fell, that he came slowly back--adds an enormous weight of meaning to the film.
All but sweeps you away with its dazzling technique and shattering emotion. [27 November 1996, Tempo, p.1]
Shine has a story to reckon with and powerhouse male performances.
Shine beams with warmth, sensitivity, and fine taste.
