Grand Piano (2013) Director: Eugenio Mira Watched: 8/14/18 Rating: 6/10

{Clue: Written by this jazz-loving director}

Comeback performance from a concert pianist that retired five years ago due to stagefright,

How ironic that time his nerves are actually warranted- an unfortunate victim of a sniper with dubious motives and a perplexing modus operandi.

A skilled camera lens that erratically yet poetically serves as our tour guide- sending us from conductor to pianist to violinist to audience to balcony back to pianist to backstage to villain- even split screen and through the gears under the piano's hood.

Zealous fans of classical music will not be disappointed by the score-

Exceptional compositions played beautifully as they augment the taut mood/tempo and thrills/suspense of the story.

Laudable performances from Wood and Cusack in a taut "Phonebooth" meets "Whiplash" battle of wits.

Lamentable premise that starts out tenuously at best- becoming campy by its unsatisfying finale.

End result is a beautifully orchestrated concert with skilled musicians- but essential components of the symphony are defective.
