Critic Reviews for An Unfinished Piece for Mechanical Piano

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Nikita Mikhalkov's obliquely titled An Unfinished Piece for Player Piano is a magnificent film, a marvelous, transcendent and totally fulfilling viewing experience.

  • "An Unfinished Piece for Player Piano" is buoyed by a cast that is uniformly excellent...

    January 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film, only very loosely based on the early Chekhov play Platonov, is perhaps even closer to Chekhov than Chekhov was.

    June 30, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Mikhalkov's version of Chekhov's first play, Platonov, has a lyrical naturalism that Chekhov would have loved.

    April 4, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The relentlessly pretty cinematography suggests an urge for precious self-deception on Mikhalkov's part as strong as any of his characters'.

    April 4, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Decidedly, it is Chekhov who has inspired the timeliest film of the year.
