Amber Wilkinson
Eye for Film

Part romance, part animation, part sci-fi thriller - Boe uses any and every tool he can get his hands on to tell this tale of emotional isolation and resolution.

[Director] Boe's technique has more flash than passion.

Boe continues to remap Copenhagen with this arthouse sci-fi trip into the outer regions of love, identity and oblivion.

Although the film, much like its protagonist and his piano playing, lacks a certain passion, its stylistic structure and execution are coolly flawless.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Spare, elegant and tailor-made for intense discussions over dark coffee, Boe's film is a slily bold and delightfully inventive variation on an age-old theme.

In Allegro, the past is a shadowy night town whose geography is continually rearranging itself.

Like its gifted, but emotionally frigid, pianist hero, Allegro is filled with technical virtuosity but short on real feeling.

Writer-director Christoffer Boe takes himself very, very seriously. Me, not so much.

Sadly confused, but some beautiful touches give this a magical feel.

A slight, pretentious Danish sci-fi romance, notable mainly for the former supermodel Helena Christensen's acting debut.

Guardian

Had Tarkovsky ever felt the urge to shoot a perfume commercial, it would probably look a lot like Allegro, this super-stylish, pungently pretentious sci-fi romance from Danish director Christoffer Boe.

It's a technically accomplished film, but one that lacks the sort of memorably poignant performances that Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet brought to Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.

[Director Christoffer] Boe offers us a vision of love as a beautiful thing that leaves destruction and pain in its wake.

Though less ambiguous in its message than Reconstruction, Boe succeeds again in telling a captivating story about the emotions that connect us all.

Film Threat

Ignoring any traditional storytelling boundaries, Allegro is an existential masterpiece from Denmark about the flaws of perfection and the consequences of allowing your memories to slip away into the unknown.
