June 9, 2017
Director Eugenio Mira manages to keep Grand Piano visually stimulating even when writer Damien Chazelle's script gets silly.

It's a crazy if occasionally engaging mess.

The filmmaking virtuosity is admirable, but in the end it's more flat than sharp.

Preposterous, but much anxious fun.

"Grand Piano" is an ambitious effort that plays dumb.

Not all the right notes are hit in "Grand Piano," but for an elegantly schizoid B movie, it's more B-sharp than B-flat.

"Grand Piano" is a tidy and tension-filled exercise in terror that takes stage fright to literal extremes.

Once you accept that "Grand Piano" is B-movie pulp, there's a certain amount of fun to be had. This proudly old-fashioned movie will pull any trick in the book to hold your attention.

Grand Piano is a screenwriter's fantasy of a self-conscious Hitchcockian thriller, daringly written, improbably made - and more unbelievably made well.

This thriller set in a concert hall is a stunt, but a damn good one. Maybe risk hasn't died yet in filmmaking.

With nearly a dozen production companies and financiers presenting it, "Piano" is nothing more than a way for moneyed muckety-mucks to be part of the movie biz.

The only way I can make sense of this movie is to imagine it was made on a dare: Someone bet Spanish director/composer Eugenio Mira he couldn't do "Speed," but with a piano instead of a bus - and the guy likes to prove people wrong.

The tempo is swift though the timbre is hollow in this superficially engrossing thriller, which channels the go-for-broke spirit of Brian De Palma and Dario Argento without quite attaining the same senses-altering fervor.

Even after the story falls apart, you still feel you've seen something. Grand Piano has savoir-faire to burn.

A not-quite-horror film, Eugenio Mira's appealingly absurd thriller sets out to tickle viewers rather than terrorize them.
