Ridiculous, convoluted, and contrived.

Grand Piano may be little more than a good-looking B-movie, but it's done with skill, creativity and a shrewd understanding of the genre, meaning it deserves at least one encore, if not a standing ovation.
November 22, 2018
The effective mix of old and new that courses through the film's entire bloodstream is evident from its opening title sequence, a bold and elegant fetishization of a piano that makes its outer contours sexy and its interior strings appear sharp.
August 21, 2018
Gimmicky and melodramatic, the plot to Grand Piano surprisingly pulls off an entertaining flick.
April 12, 2018
A tense, suspense-filled thriller with an element of the underdog about it.
October 20, 2017
... Grand Piano is a movie that puts style over substance to great effect.
August 18, 2017
There is little point going into the motives of the man calling the shots in Damien Chazelle's script as they are ridiculous and ill-conceived.
June 9, 2017
Director Eugenio Mira manages to keep Grand Piano visually stimulating even when writer Damien Chazelle's script gets silly.
March 16, 2017
Excessive in its simplicity, yet simplistic in its excess, 'Grand Piano' is a sharp thriller that knows exactly what it is and what it wants to do -- like any good concert, the goal is to entertain, and it succeeds fairly well.

Grand Piano can be enjoyed from multiple perspectives: it will satisfy the film buff, the tech hound, and the sit-back-and-be-entertained audience.
January 8, 2016
Eugenio Mira's Grand Piano is a stylish and taut thriller that wastes no time on spectacle, instead choosing to meticulously focus on story, characters, atmosphere and building tension throughout.

...quite engaging for the duration of its 90 minutes.
September 21, 2014
Entertainingly preposterous ...
September 20, 2014
It's ridiculously far-fetched, and classical concertgoers will wince at the script's wilful blunders, but flamboyant camerawork and a delicious streak of dark humour make it ridiculously enjoyable, too.
September 19, 2014
The tension fizzles once the reasons for the gunman's motives become evident. A shame, as it's an intriguing conceit.
September 19, 2014
The concept of this real time thriller is, of course, extremely silly, but it keeps you entertained.
September 18, 2014
It's a crazy if occasionally engaging mess.
September 18, 2014
Complete codswallop but not entirely awful.
September 18, 2014
Some inspired grace notes elevate a thriller that's more De Palma than Hitchcock.
September 18, 2014
The filmmaking virtuosity is admirable, but in the end it's more flat than sharp.
