Movie Info

The intersection of art and life are at the core of 'Music From the Inside Out,' a provocative 90-minute musical journey through the lives of the 105 musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra. It is the Orchestra's first film appearance since Disney's 'Fantasia' in 1940. While 'Music From the Inside Out' is about the many people within the ensemble, it is ultimately an intimate musical journey. Each musician's story reveals a struggle to maintain individuality, to test musical boundaries, and to choose the path of an artist. Told without host or narrator, the stories of these musicians are interwoven and build upon each other to ultimately reveal the diversity of personalities that make up a symphony orchestra.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (4)

  • The result is 90 minutes in the company of some of the nicest and most boring people you can imagine ever having a movie made about them.

  • We hear all kinds of comments -- about personal satisfactions, dissatisfactions, rewards.

    March 20, 2006
  • It doesn't attempt to neatly summarize the musical experience. Anker gives the players free rein to express their wonderment.

  • Music from the Inside Out is not so much about the people, but about what they create, and it's at its most effective when the talking stops.

  • The composite picture it offers of the performing life is still unforgettable.

    You have to be really interested in music to enjoy this, since it mixes performances with interviews with musicians. I loved it, but I am a musician.
