We can note immediately that Zilberman has the requisite gifts.

Fan The Fire

Not without its touching moments, A Late Quartet nevertheless can't truly escape the eye-rolling determinism of its script, with only a pragmatic, wry Christopher Walken truly convincing as a man who has lived inextricably bound with his music.

If nothing else, A Late Quartet captures the reality of dealing with professional classical musicians.

The Patriot Ledger

A classical-music ensemble rosins up the bull in a tone-deaf melodrama that loves its musical metaphors almost has much as it adores afternoon soaps.

Constantly engaging.

April 12, 2013

One might expect a film set in the high culture world of classical music to come up with a more sophisticated metaphor for the insecurities of a violinist than having him worry about always playing second fiddle in life.

Observer [UK]

A Late Quartet is visually and musically rich. But above all there are the performances, individually and as an ensemble, and they're pitch perfect.

While this film has some bracingly strong observations on the nature of long-term professional and personal relationships, it also feels somewhat theatrical in the way its story develops.

It is not flawless but it makes you watch, and listen, closely throughout.

It isn't great art, but it is patterned after great art, and there are worse ways to make a film than that.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

The film offers first-rate, mostly middle-aged actors in an intelligent screenplay that's decently crafted, covers interesting but unfamiliar ground and has a worthwhile central idea.

[L]ays on [its] metaphor a little too thickly, [but] all is preforgiven... by the sheer joy of getting to watch Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener, and Philip Seymour Hoffman rattle around one another...

Wants to be Bergman, ends up more like a burgundy-hued Sunset Beach.

The picture's really about the trials and joys of performing for a living so it's no surprise that it has attracted such a fine cast, nor that its principal virtue lies in the acting.

Engaging drama, enlivened by a trio of terrific performances from Hoffman, Keener and Walken, though the script occasionally feels a little contrived.

The result is a perfectly serviceable, well acted melodrama - but why so serious?
