Critic Reviews for The Sonata

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (13)

  • Andrew Desmond's feature-length narrative debut The Sonata is a literate, methodically paced throwback thriller that plays a little like a Hammer production from the mid-to-late 1960s.

    January 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Ignoring the fact that nothing much is going on here, director Andrew Desmond plods along trying to make you believe otherwise.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • A thriller that, despite decent moment-to-moment pacing, drags out its anticipatory finger-twiddling far too long.

    January 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • First-time feature-director Andrew Desmond brings such confident panache to the supernatural thriller "The Sonata" that it almost doesn't matter how derivative the plot is.

    January 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A leaden Gothic ghost story whose high-gloss imagery fails to disguise its low-energy plot.

    January 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Many elements of The Sonata are familiar, but don't let that put you off. The sum of its parts is very worthwhile, beautiful, atmospheric and precise.

    February 4, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
