Unfinished Song Reviews

The crescendo of two resonant careers makes the false notes of "Unfinished Song" forgivable.

Shamelessly sentimental, cute to a fault, but the acting is first-rate.

The gentle story of a marriage, and of how music can help make a broken heart whole again.

Unfinished Song is full of predictably poignant moments; you'd be lucky to survive the film dry-eyed.

[A] modest, tear-jerking charmer ... Just don't expect too much more than what shows on its paint-by-numbers surface.

Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp and those voices - their solos contain this picture like carved book-ends, vintage and lovely and still so profoundly of use.

Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave would be captivating reading the nutrition label on a bag of crisps, so it's no surprise that they elevate "Unfinished Song"...

It's worth a watch, if just for Stamp's complex performance. Just don't forget to bring some tissues.

Blends the premise of TV's Glee with liberal splashes of recent older-skewing audience pleasers Quartet and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in predictable fashion.

[Stamp] and Vanessa Redgrave, as well as supporting actors Christopher Eccleston and Gemma Arterton, raise "Unfinished Song," Paul Andrew Williams's entry in the golden age genre, from mawkish to genuinely heartwarming.

Get out your handkerchiefs for an unabashed tearjerker that has some surprisingly potent moments. Buried in all the shameless sentiment is a touching family story, and good performances from veterans Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave.

When it's over you may notice red marks on your throat, so determined is "Unfinished Song" to strangle the audience into emotional submission.

It's all very predictable - including the competition the group enters, the tragedies along the way, and the final big-hugs-all-around ending.

The director, Paul Andrew Williams, at least had the good sense to cast Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave as his leads. Who can possibly look away from those two whenever they're on screen?

Williams fills his screenplay with nails that he can then hammer for the rest of the running time, so whether it's dying wife/mum/grandma or strained father-son relations that bring you to tears, the movie keeps pummeling you until you produce them.

The movie works mostly because of the artistry of its stellar cast and heartfelt script by writer-director Paul Andrew Williams.

[It] doesn't earn its sentimentalism; instead it rolls through a series of cliched life lessons that never come close to exploring the film's emotional territory with any depth or commitment.

In the film, a comment is made about the power of a voice being not in technique but in the journey it took to get there. Stamp and Redgrave and living embodiments of that philosophy.

Thank goodness, at least, for the sterling cast. In fact, you won't find a better example of the ways in which craft and talent can elevate even the most rote material.

For all its sporadic flashes of insight, Unfinished Song is built around the assumption that there's nothing funnier than old timers throwing devil horns, doing the robot, or performing a rousing rendition of Salt-N-Pepa's "Let's Talk About Sex."

A movie so geared toward hitting its spots, it amounts to emotional Muzak rather than something truly played live.

In the end, director Paul Andrew Williams fails to resist sentimentality, but classy acting and distinguished production values never sink to the level of soap opera.

Williams uses a sledgehammer to drive [his] message home, but the velvet touch of his cast (particularly Redgrave) almost salvages this.
