I think one of the biggest challenges all the filmmakers of the world have to confront is transforming a good idea into a solid and entertaining movie.I think that thing almost destroys Allegro,which starts with an ingenious idea,but the film has difficulty in keeping it interesting in 88 minutes.I think the concept behind this movie would have worked better in a short.The main idea behind this movie has been used in The Twilight Zone and that idea totally fixed in 30 minutes.With some differences,we see that idea in almost one hour and a half of running time and,in spite of that,director Cristoffer Boe shows some good scenes and an excellent visual presentation but the film gets a little bit boring and,on some moments,I felt it was going nowhere.The ending is good,but for landing on that,we had to see redundant scenes and some tedious moments.Allegro had an ingenious idea and I totally appreciated that.But the film found difficulty to develop it and there are some tedious scenes.I can recommend it without too much confidence.
