Stamp and Redgrave elevate adequate material into something special every time they share the screen. Be forewarned that the musical number that closes the film is guaranteed to have you reaching for the Kleenex.

The simple fact is that Unfinished Song works on nearly every level -- thanks in large part to the presence of Terence Stamp and the always remarkable Vanessa Redgrave.

Unfinished Song is easy to swallow and entirely void of awkward lumps. It even nourishes the soul at some base level thanks to the superlative performances from the highly laurelled cast.

The crescendo of two resonant careers makes the false notes of "Unfinished Song" forgivable.

Shamelessly sentimental, cute to a fault, but the acting is first-rate.

Unfinished Song is full of predictably poignant moments; you'd be lucky to survive the film dry-eyed.

Simplistic, but blessedly so, Song is only out to warm up its audience, inducing tears and smiles as three actors keep the production palatable despite its serious lean toward a manipulative disaster.

[A] modest, tear-jerking charmer ... Just don't expect too much more than what shows on its paint-by-numbers surface.

Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp and those voices - their solos contain this picture like carved book-ends, vintage and lovely and still so profoundly of use.

Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave would be captivating reading the nutrition label on a bag of crisps, so it's no surprise that they elevate "Unfinished Song"...

It's worth a watch, if just for Stamp's complex performance. Just don't forget to bring some tissues.

[Stamp] and Vanessa Redgrave, as well as supporting actors Christopher Eccleston and Gemma Arterton, raise "Unfinished Song," Paul Andrew Williams's entry in the golden age genre, from mawkish to genuinely heartwarming.

[Unfinished Song] is a British film that's sure to fly under the radar this summer, which is a shame since it's an entertaining little story about love, regret and aging.

Get out your handkerchiefs for an unabashed tearjerker that has some surprisingly potent moments. Buried in all the shameless sentiment is a touching family story, and good performances from veterans Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave.
