Wood had worked with a teacher three weeks prior to going to Barcelona and found it stressful having to play the piano and speak at the same time saying, "It was incredibly technical [...] lots of moments where it was jumping from where I'd play, listen to a click, listen to music, have to be in the right place and the right time and hear dialogue and repeat dialogue".

Suspenseful? -- not so much. But you will want to watch to the end because there is just enough happening to keep your attention.
This is an odd little movie with Wood playing a rather nervous pianist about to perform one of the most complex and challenging music compositions ever written. Then he discovers his life is on the line.
My problem was the constant running off and on stage during the performance because he appears to suffer more from a bowel or bladder issue. He is constantly up and down and running around throughout the concert but always back --- just in time for his piano playing! It got funny after awhile.
The set is pleasing and there aren't many surprises in the plot ... but watch to the very end because something happens!
