Synopsis Henry and Jack are two famous and talented pianists: they are rivals and try to outdo each other in the various music events where they regularly compete. They have known each other since their days at the music academy and developed a very strong friendship. They met Lana there and Jack had an affair with her then. This friendship deteriorated along the years and Lana left Jack for Henry. Jack's resentment towards Henry will increase even further when he realizes that although his talent as a pianist is as great a talent as Henry's, he always ended up second... behind Henry. Simultaneously, Lana slowly realized that the only thing Henry cares about is his job. When she gets pregnant, he tells her he doesn't want the child and she leaves him, taking refuge with Jack who thus finds a way to get back at Henry. From that point, the former friends will clash with no mercy, from contest to contest until the day a domestic robot, GLENN, enters their lives. GLENN will jeopardize ... Written by Marc Goldstein

A broken and injured piano player teaches a robot to play the piano.
16 September 2011 | by (Earlville Il) – See all my reviews

A sci-fi film set in the near future with pretty good special effects. A futuristic movie that I rather enjoyed. This is a love story about a jealous music genius (Jack)who is a rival for Lana (who is pregnant with Henry's child). The rest of the movie is about the feud over a woman that loves them both...but is done with both of them. Nothing heavy...but an enjoyable suspenseful ride. Gerard Depardieu is wasted in a cameo. Jack, because of an injury to his hand attempts to train the flying robot, so he can win the girl on a bet with Henry. This is just one of several reasons that Lana is done with them. The robot in this movie could have been considered cute...but the director avoids any temptations to do so. Stay after the credits for another couple of minutes of the film.
