Movie Info

Upon the death of her husband, Claire (70) decides to reconnect with her estranged son, down and out R&B musician Sid. She asks him to help her restart the old girl group she used to sing in with two of her friends from the old days. The rebel son is hesitant at first but eventually agrees under one condition: the band has to play HIS music. -- (C) Official Site

An occasionally amusing, emotionally sound Belgian dramedy that never quite jells into the winning look at senior citizens - and second chances - that was clearly intended.

The acting is restrained, the story stays under the top, and hand-held cameras shake almost imperceptibly, giving a whiff of verite with no danger of going full Greengrass.

Sugary and has a silly tear-jerker ending.

Lodged firmly in the "You go granny!" genre alongside wrinkled fluffery like Calendar Girls and the execrable Boynton Beach Club, The Over the Hill Band at least offers truth in advertising.

Een if these "look at those wacky seniors" moments predominate, there's still a genuine sense of saddened empathy for the marginalized elders-even a (timid) acknowledgment of their still vital libidos.

It's a set-up that requires a light touch and deft characterisations but Enthoven plods, heavy-handedly, through the tropes.

I would not recommend "The Over the Hill Band," but it practically begs to be remade for American TV with Betty White in the lead.

The Over the Hill Band lacks artistry, but it remains a somewhat uniquely oddball diversion, though a tedious opening act makes it a bit of a long haul getting there.
