| watch it to tease you into checking out more classical music
I found the movie definitely enjoyable and touching - because I was in the right mood and went to see it exactly because it suited me at that point. I did not expect much of a plot, I just wanted a cozy and old-glam cinema evening and enjoy good music. For that, it is really sweet.

Everything else, I have to agree with the other negative reviewers: the plot seriously is one-dimensional and predictable and not particularly fascinating - especially, because the story does not seem convincing and things often to not make sense. E.g. the mom being against the playing, yet he had years and years of practice at home. and if he can play at home despite the moms opposition, why did he have to take the risk of being caught and play in a public station? Just to mention one of the things that bothered me.

In total I had the feeling, I am watching a draft script: the scenes sequential and explicit in their intention - Scene x1 "Mathieu is confronted by his friends" Scene X2 "Mathieu has to explain to his mother" and so forth. There is seriously no depth to be found. If he'd have carved out that style a bit more he could have turned it into another great artsy film of "gluing" together fragments of backstory with the leading, overarching theme of the great music. But, well he didn't. So the whole thing just seems a bit simplistic, novice and unaware.

Characters are accordingly flat and unbelievable and stereotypical. I liked the musician-style romance scene. Except for the eye-rolling parts of course.

anyway, go and enjoy it with a glass of wine and something to cuddle - just don't expect spiritual inspiration.
