After connecting with the shy Madeline, a jazz trumpeter embarks on a quest for a more gregarious paramour, but through a series of twists and turns punctuated by an original score, the two lovers seem destined to be together.
During its limited theatrical release, the film was screened at only one New York City location: Quad Cinema, New York's first multiplex theater (opened in 1972). See more »
The opening drive into Chicago begins southbound on Lake Shore Drive, then northbound on LaSalle (you'll recognize it from the Batman films), then south on Wabash, then suddenly across the river, coming east on Washington, where the car finally stops at the Lyric Opera building. The interiors were shot elsewhere, so nothing looks like the actual hall. See more »
A film that has clearly started with a high concept - like Speed but playing a piano rather than driving a bus - and the plot has been fitted round that. Having started from that fairly ludicrous premise, you might hope that the film would either embrace it and not take itself seriously, or find clever twists to add. Unfortunately it does neither. It's short enough to avoid being boring, and competently shot and acted, but really has very little to offer.
It's hard to think of the target audience for this - a run of the mill thriller based around classical music? - and I am mystified by its inclusion at the London Film Festival.
