I really like Richard Chamberlain as Tchaikovsky.  Playing the first Piano Concerto, or drinking the cholera water, or all the scenes with Glenda Jackson.

I agree on Roger Daltrey.

We each have our own opinions. My opinion is that I like the film, but I am not fond of Richard Chamberlain's portrayal as Tchaikovsky. Indeed, while I think Richard Chamberlain's best work has been on TV and not in films, I can't think of any performance of his, that I particularly like. Holding that he has always been more of a star than an actor. But, thank-you for your response. They are always welcome.
