About the Movie
George Sand was perhaps the most celebrated novelist of the early nineteenth century and its most notorious Bohemian, better known in her own day than even Charles Dickens. Frederic Chopin was among the greatest musicians of his age. A prodigy who rapidly gained a legendary reputation all over Europe as both a pianist and a composer. IMPROMPTU is the comic and tender tale of how Goerge Sand and Chopin met; of how Sand recklessly pursued Chopin; how Chopin resisted Sand's advances; of how, despite the best and most mischievous efforts of many of those around them, they eventually fell in love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Anna Massey, who appears fleetingly as Sand's mother, offers a demonstration of how to make an overpoweringly fine impression in only a few minutes' time.
Rotten: Despite all this assembled talent, the film stubbornly refuses to come to life.
Fresh: Director James Lapine pushes the story to its entertaining fullest, exuding a period-costumed sense of fun.
Fresh: A blissfully high-spirited romp about the circle of writers and musicians in 1830s Paris.
Impromptu - GREAT MOVIE!
Judy Davis is just fantastic in this film. She falls madly in love w/ Hugh Grant and tries so hard to get him. Other actors in this film include Bernadette Peters, Julian Sands, and Emma Thompson. They all bring life into this great film. It is funny, romantic, and enjoyable. It is worth getting.
Worth Your Money, and Time
This movie is one worth seeing. Grant gives a great proformance of Chopan. The romance is very unique in the sense that a woman chasing after a man, in this time period, was more than slightly looked down apon. Yet due to this quirk this movie gives you more appriciation for its heroine and her out take on life.
A delightful surprise
This film is as much a comedy as a romance. It will be nothing your suspected and will do little to satisfy the historians amongst us. What it is, however, is a delightful tale of an unconventional women succumbing to the most conventional of feelings – love. Beautifully performed by Judy Davis, it will have you laughing throughout and touched at its conclusion.
