Review: Performance

17 Apr 13

Great acting, great music

"Performance" is the story of a world-renowned string quartet whose cellist (and oldest member) is diagnosed with Parkinson's and who is forced to contemplate retirement. As the movie develops, we learn more and more about the characters and their underlying relationships and tensions. This is not as dull as it sounds! The acting is superb and, if you enjoy classical music, you will love this film. 4 stars.
