Superb cast of actors that give you their best in this hilarious look at aging opera stars. Treat yourself to a fun experience of the elderly perspective of themselves.

Wishing there had been more actual music playing by the members of the musicians retirement home, and perhaps a bit more of the back stories of the principal players Quartet was, nonetheless, a pleasing, even uplighting, film about friends helping friends grow older, and about artistic temperament in all its varieties. Quite a novel treatment. I liked it.

I guess I'm a sucker for anything Maggie Smith! The cast was amazing, the story heartwarming and the setting stunning. This movie is for any age and has a wonderful message that, it's never too late to try one more time. Brava to the entire cast and Dustin Hoffman for an incredibly well done performance.

Quartet is funny and charming. Even though I don't like opera, I do love music, and I appreciate the music throughout this movie. But the best part of this movie is it's humor.

Quartet is so beautifully made, presenting a group of octagenarians with dignity and love. Each character is so well crafted, that you feel for them. And that Dustin Hoffman used real life musicians is very tasteful and admirable. It has a nice rythm to the film, but perhaps a bit slow at about 1/3 into it -- but then it kicks in again and you are just hoping it won't end.
