Critic Reviews for A Song for Martin
August ... steers this story to its stirring conclusion with firm lack of sentimentality.
It may sound like a mere disease-of- the-week TV movie, but A Song For Martin is made infinitely more wrenching by the performances of real-life spouses Seldahl and Wollter.
Full of unforgiving irony and quiet realism, A Song for Martin stands as a powerful and moving achievement.
More honest about Alzheimer's disease, I think, than Iris.
Viveka Seldahl and Sven Wollter will touch you to the core in a film you will never forget -- that you should never forget.
The movie, for all its sincerity, becomes clinical and repetitious, though its unsparing vision of the fragility of identity can give you a shudder.
Audience Reviews for A Song for Martin
This one was tough to watch, as a man who had been a brilliant composer slowly succumbed to Alzheimer's and his wife tried her best to keep him going. Absolutely brilliant portrayal by Steven Wollter as Martin and Viveka Seldahl as Barbara. The supporting cast was excellent and the emotions were never far from the surface. The music was divine. An altogether well done film.
A very well acted, written, & directed film about a romance fighting a losing battle with an untreatable disease. The film itself is slow paced, but heavy on emotions since it addresses the progressive deterioration of the man's health, and it's crippling effect on him and his family. Even though the two met and fell in love while they were married to other people, you still feel bad for what they endure throughout the film. The two lead actors, and the supporting cast, did a great job to make this production a memorable one.
