Storyline

Cadence (Malia Flack) has an incredible gift for music. The only problem is no one knows it. Overcome with stage fright, Cadence has hidden her talent away only to show it in the comfortable confines of her school music room, after hours of course, and only for the ears of her best friend Lizzy (Avery Noel). As the daughter of successful sound engineer parents, Cadence feels the pressure to be heard. Mika (Elina Odnoralov) comes from a classically trained musical family and must contend with her piano genius brother. She struggles to deal with the weight of expectations, as she wrestles with her talent and the style of music her heart yearns to play. A Perfect Chord is an inspiring film about overcoming fears, living up to expectations, the power of friendship and using ones gifts and talents to inspire others. Written by Nathan Blair

A bit too soppy and melodramatic for my taste.
1 April 2017 | by nzswannySee all my reviews

This film isn't very well known (it only has ten votes on here), so I'm a bit curious as of how you got to this film. But anyway, your reading my review, and you want to know if you'll like it, so...read.

This is a film about a teenage musician who has stage fright, and how she tries to overcome it. The film was made on a highly small budget, and the camera work in this is actually quite good and professional-looking considering the small budget. The sound work, as well, was really well done, and parts didn't feel too quiet, too loud or too fuzzy like most low budget films, so I'll give it that.

Bach once said this: "The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul." This film runs mostly on that quote, comparing music to God and religion. This didn't bother me one bit, but if your an atheist, you may be a bit offended at the religious factor in this.

The reason why I didn't like it myself is because 1. The soundtrack wasn't that great, and was a bit off putting from the film. 2. The cliché teenage behaviour, "Yes, you can!" "How could you?!" "Oh my gooosh!" It was quite frustrating, and I got a bit angry at the TV because of it, so I threw a straw at it. 3. It's just not the type of movie I'd usually enjoy. It's like a TV movie (maybe it is one), with soppy music in the background and melodramatic, over-the-top moments. Some viewers like that sort of style to their films, but to me, it's just downright annoying, cheesy and off putting.

If you like TV-style movies with the soppy music in the background in neutral moments rather than sad ones, you may enjoy this. This has a target audience that's out there, I'm just not part of it. Those of you in the target audience should know who you are, and I just wanted to make this review so people could know whether or not they'd like the film.
