"Running on Empty"? I know about the Pathetique 2nd mvmt - this is something else ( by Beethoven, I believe.) The @$#$ movie didn't even credit the composer at the end - but they DID mention something by Madonna. Sheesh.

Sorry, I can't even so-fa a few notes.

I don't know the movie, but I can search for clips on YouTube. One clip shows him playing the 2nd movement of the Pathetique as you say; another clip shows him on a stage playing the Mozart C minor Fantasy K.475. Here's a recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1D3V4SX-k0
