Loved this movie. It so reflects its director's consciousness -- funny, bawdy, a bit over the top, and his love of music --he's a great pianist-- elevates it .

Great story, actors, scenery, music. Warm and touching - wonderful pix for our times which is a great deal of violence, mayhem and superfluous sex!

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.

This movie is definitely outstanding and everyone should see it. A beautiful love story that unfolds to opera and classicl music. The cast is amazing and Maggie Smith is at her best as usual. All of the actors did a wonderful job of the persons they portrayed. It is definitely a must see and my husband and I will probably go see it again!
