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.

Decent acting, but a banal and somewhat tawdry story: fairly standard cinematic fare.

The oldest member of a string quartet comes down with Parkinson's, which leads to the manifestation of long latent conflicts amongst the remaining members. Wonderfully acted with great respect to the music.

Fantastic cast and great acting but I couldn't have cared less about the storyline. Dreary, slow paced drama about classical music and the personal lives (dysfunctional) of the members of a quartet.

Not for everyone. I listen to classical music, but am hardly an aficionado. I believe there may be resonances between the characters and the music of which I remain unaware. Certainly, I was not aware of Beethoven's Quartet #131 being especially remarkable. If you don't like classical music this movie probably won't stand up on its plot. I did find the music and the quartet of people moving at times. If you love classical music, see this and write a better review than this, please.
