Underrated. Superbly-acted and directed, very funny--a laugh a minute, heart-warming and true. Why hasn't this film been more widely distributed? Is someone afraid it wouldn't appeal to younger or mass audiences?

If you like these great Englsh actors and actresses and you enjoy classical music, you will definitely enjoy this movie. If not, then you probably won't.

This is a glorious movie with absolutely lovely scenery and cinematography, gorgeous music, great humor and dialogue, a good old fashioned story with actual plot and a happy ending! What more could you want. Okay, cheaper popcorn but that isn't going to happen. I 'm not sure young people would enjoy this as much as older folks but it goes to the matter of being an oldster.
Dustin Hoffman has always acted in great movies now he has produced and directed one too!

You don't have to be an opera lover to enjoy the interaction between the residents and staff at this retirement home for professional musicians. It's a story of hope when you feel you've lost what you thought was important. It shows how valuable friendships are, how easy it is to misunderstand circumstances and the importance of being able to forgive yourself and others It also makes obvious what we all have in common no matter our situation in life - mortality. I loved everything about this movie. The actors, the music and the beautiful location.
