Storyline

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

Oh boy... sigh...
7 November 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Good ideas don't always make good movies... At least not when the movie has a bad direction. There are extremely painful moments, for example when the robot plays the piano, and we see his hands... which are playing nothing like what we hear. And there are a lot of incoherences : robots don't blink 'cause the don't have to. Flying without the slightest noise? Impossible. Does a robot needs to mark the rhythm moving like Ray Charles when it plays the piano? I don't think so... and so on. Long story short, the acting is pretty bad, the dialogs are mediocre, the story is foreseeable, and the so-called special effects... well, better not to say anything about it, the cup is full already.

I must say I'm really sad about it all. I wanted to watch this movie, I like the principal actor, and I love movies about music (like "the legend of 1900" or "Shine", which I enjoyed immensely). I have no idea what happened here. Lack of budget? A first movie by a young greenhorn wannabe film maker? A thing is obvious though, the directing is bad. The good intentions fail to crystallize in a movie, if not good, at least watchable until the end. Thing that, I must admit, I didn't manage to stand but in fast forward motion.

It's sooo sad...
