Quartet


Item Details

The rumor circling the halls is that Beecham House (the home for retired musicians) is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. Reginald, Wilfred and Cecily are in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean. Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard.

Good movie, especially if music is what you like. I wish I could retire at such place, if it really exist.

Wanting to be quirky and poignant it is goes too far, except the fine acting talent. It's OK no more.

Didn't expect too much before watching it. But it was a surprise. Sorry is simple but pleasant.

Enjoyable enough, but not very memorable. It was a treat to see a few well known faces among the residents. As for the main characters? after starting to care a bit about their stories, I became distracted by how difficult it must be for a non-musician to portray a musician in a film about music.

Great actors and lots of funny parts. A good message about how to grow old with vigor and fun. Its a pity there are so few films made like this.

The movie creators set up the scenery, hired outstanding actors to play in it but didn't care to find a decent script that would instill life into their creation.The result - a flat, mawkish and boring movie. Every character is too tense, frenetic, straight-spined and stiff to resemble a real-life retiree. In every scene they look all dressed up and nowhere to go. The movie builds up to the presentation of the famous Verdi's quartet and then... nothing. Instead, we have a Holliwood-like happy end with a promise of a wedding (a sequel to follow?) I would recommend to skip this phoney. Instead, watch "Ginger and Fred" - magnificent, wonderful Italian movie. It is in the library catalogue.

Dr. Lucy Cogan: "Why do you persist in flirting with me, Wilf?" Wilf Bond: "Because, you're a cracker. A thing of beauty. You're not a bimbo, or a chick, or any of those awful things. You're one of that rarest of species... You're a woman, Lucy Cogan." Dr. Lucy Cogan (laughing): " Well, I'm flattered, but I have professional ethics to uphold." Wilf Bond: "Aaah, throw caution to the wind. What if we were to make beauuutiful music together... Your husband would never know!" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "Well, that's reassuring, Wilf." Wilf Bond: "Think about it, huh?" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "No, Wilf." Wilf Bond: "No one will ever know!" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "I will know." Wilf Bond: "Older man... vintage wine... seasoned wood..." Dr. Lucy Cogan: "...Did you say 'wood'?" Wilf Bond: "...Seasoned!..."
