The delightful, emotional tale of a genius pianist who was found as a child by a crew member on an ocean liner has lived his whole life refusing to step off the vessel he calls home. 1900's life is a happy one, as he plays piano in the ship's band and learns about life on shore from the passengers he meets. But when love and opportunity step aboard, 1900 is forced to decide whether he should leave the ocean liner that has been his whole world.

We hate to say it, but we can't find anywhere to view this film.

Baltimore Sun by Chris Kaltenbach

There's a ton of joy in The Legend of 1900 -- but it's laid on so thick that one ends up more numbed than stirred, overcome by one too many Hallmark moments.


San Francisco Chronicle by Edward Guthmann

The schmaltz is relentless in The Legend of 1900, the newest film from "Cinema Paradiso'' director Giuseppe Tornatore. It comes in waves, it leeches onto every surface and it turns decent actors into sticky-sweet fuzzballs.
