Quartet

BabyGirl21, blu-ray.com
24 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Quartet: Pretty nice slice of life with lots of funny lines. Pauline Collins and Tom Courtenay were very good, Billy Connolly had a great character to ham it up with, the mischievous flirty guy who smuggles in booze and claims the wood is still there (as he shows his cane).

Trick subject matter well handled

  • Excerpt: Many old, ill and especially those suffering from early dementia or following a stroke are most reluctant to discuss the subject and this film has the possibility to deeply offend. The cast and crew are obviously very much aware of this and skate over thin ice like Olympic champions.

Pretty boring if you're under 50

  • Summary: I went to this with my parents (who are in their 70s). They loved in, but as a 40-year-old, I was pretty bored. I generally enjoy Maggie Smith's movies, and enjoy opera music. So I was sympathetic to this film and wanted to enjoy it - especially as it has such a fine cast. .

Relatively straight-forward cinema

  • Summary: Despite there being a plethora of on-screen talent, Billy Connolly is, unfortunately, the only one who is able to carry this simple but humorous film above the sentimentality and predictability.

Not much of a story

Deb, Flicks

  • Summary: Implausible, a bit boring, just needed more story. The acting was good but really the first thing you want to invest in is a script.

"Dignified Senility" at its best!

Weds_Loafers, Flicks
26 April 2013
  • Summary: 7 of us scored this movie. It is a charming and delightful comedy set in a home for retired musicians, who live in "dignified senility" and are trying to raise money by way of a concert so that the home can continue to operate.
