Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
    • Excerpt: A very special and memorable movie with top drawer acting, great classical music, and a theme of spiritual transformation.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: a soap opera gussied up with a high brow setting and high caliber actors that has the good grace to go out on a particularly effective note.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: The performances from the leads are strong all around, but they are restricted by the limitations of the multiple, transparent conflicts.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: The mature actors never strike a dissonant note.
  • [New – 4/5] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: All its faults are forgiven thanks to our sheer joy in getting to watch Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener, and Philip Seymour Hoffman rattle around one another…
  • Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row
    • Excerpt: Walken nails the sad resign of a man bidding farewell to the career he loves and the legacy that he built from nothing. It’s a beautiful, even haunting performance that gives a soul into an otherwise restricted film.
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: While classical music sometimes seems to exist in a bubble protected from the real world, the people who play it struggle with the same issues everyone else does.
  • Norm Schrager @ Meet In the Lobby
    • Excerpt: When Hoffman and Keener are onscreen… Yaron Zilberman’s debut feature plays its most beautiful and intelligent music.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
    • Excerpt: There are many excellent things in the film, not least the splendid performances.
