[Director] Boe's technique has more flash than passion.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Although the film, much like its protagonist and his piano playing, lacks a certain passion, its stylistic structure and execution are coolly flawless.
| Original Score: 4/6
In Allegro, the past is a shadowy night town whose geography is continually rearranging itself.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
Inventive, entertaining and pleasingly bold.
