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

    July 23, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Although the film, much like its protagonist and his piano playing, lacks a certain passion, its stylistic structure and execution are coolly flawless.

    May 10, 2007 | Rating: 4/6 | Full Review…
  • In Allegro, the past is a shadowy night town whose geography is continually rearranging itself.

    May 9, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Like its gifted, but emotionally frigid, pianist hero, Allegro is filled with technical virtuosity but short on real feeling.

    May 8, 2007
  • Writer-director Christoffer Boe takes himself very, very seriously. Me, not so much.

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

    May 8, 2007
  • 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.

    July 27, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Boe continues to remap Copenhagen with this arthouse sci-fi trip into the outer regions of love, identity and oblivion.

Audience Reviews for Allegro

    Although I'm not entirely pleased with the dogma-like direction the core of the story is intelligent, and as most sad things, very beautiful.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Allegro," it has been ten years since Andrea(Helena Christensen), the love of the live of Zetterstrom(Ulrich Thomsen), a concert pianist, walked out of his life. In the interim, a small section of his native Copenhagen has been sealed off behind an impenetrable force field in an area called the Zone which many fear is in rubble.(Well, it could be worse. It could be a giant ESPNZone restaurant.) While in New York, he is invited back to perform just across the way from there...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Allegro" is a pretentious and dull piece of drivel that feels like a bad episode of "The Twilight Zone" by way of Tarkovsky. It would have at least been interesting(if not terribly original, maybe) if the movie had gone with more of a "Sapphire and Steel" approach with a flexible time zone in order to depict the important events in Zetterstrom's life, instead of just deriding his accomplishments and forgetting any pleasure his performances may have given. Sure, he is eccentric and does not like to perform(I don't like anybody looking over my shoulder, either), but there are other ways he could earn a living, such as recordings.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]So, why do people keep making movies about characters they obviously have no sympathy for?[/font]
