Great acting can’t save this movie. This is a solid drama. Very slow, predictable and boring. Don’t bother.

Not a simple movie ... slow at times ... but characters are deep and complicated. I chose this movie because it had PSH in it ... but all the actors were excellent, especially Christopher Walken. Not a usual roll for him ... he surprised me.

This is a really dry, dull and boring movie. Predictable and makes great music insipid. Not recommended.

The film is a vignette of a classical music quartet. If you enjoy classical music, especially chamber music, this film will please you.

Hmm.. It is not a mediocre movie... Nor great either! A bit slow-moving at times.. Heavy on classical music world! I love classics, but this was a bit overwhelming.. I thought some characters could have been built up more.. Interesting film over-all!

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box.

A good story marred by sleazy soap opera elements. Phillip Seymour Hoffman is miscast; Christopher Walken is marvelous. Three stars for the glorious music which is the real star of this film.

Very well acted & the subject matter had such potential for deep emotional exploration; however the script was a complete snooze fest.
