Keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Very fast paced and exciting. I recommend this.
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

"I play piano, this is just another gig. Nothing else." Tom Selznick (Wood) is one of the most famous concert pianists in the world but 5 years ago he had a breakdown on stage and disappeared. Finally ready to come back to the art form he loves he stages a comeback appearance. He is as nervous as he as ever been when he starts to play, then he sees a note written on his music that makes him forget about his stage fright. The only problem is that his next note may be his last. As you know by now I watch as many movies as I can without watching the trailer first. Going in I was thinking...a movie about a piano concert with Frodo, sounds exciting (sarcasm). From the beginning I was intrigued and then it hit me. This movie is nothing like what I expected at all. A movie I expected to be about love of classical music ended up being more like Speed or Phonebooth. It was tense and exciting the entire time and I really liked it more then expected. Overall, keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Very fast paced and exciting. I recommend this. I give this a high B+.
