This review is from: Quartet [DVD] (DVD)
Having thoroughly enjoyed Marigold Hotel and being over and nearing retirement ages, my husband and I thought this would be an amusing story with some great actors. Instead we found it tedious, with a story going nowhere in particular, predictable and very implausible. The actors were all good in their roles but the script and the concept let them down. A few good lines but generally very weak and the idea that the characters in their 70s and 80s would still be able to sing like they did when they were young made it rediculous. Got to believe that this was made to cash in on the success of Marigold Hotel but has failed miserably.

Quite a long build up that then brings all the characters together for a very funny series of events, which leaves you to decide the final conclusion. Great humour that turns what could be a very black story into a very engaging drama. Probably not suitable for older people or those who can't cope with swearing and violence.

Great scenery, costumes and ambiance combined with the outstanding talents of Maggie Smith and her fellow actors. A feel-good film that would probably appeal most to the over 50s because of the main character's viewpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful film, 29 Jun. 2013

A magical piece of storytelling with wonderful scenery and camera work that deserves being seen on Blu-ray. You know that there must have been some technological manufacturing of the tiger and other creatures at times, but it was so ingeniously done that you are allowed to just believe it was real and you really feel you are in the boat with Pi. We watched it as a family (10 to 65 years) and it was enjoyed by all, on different levels. The last 15 minutes contained a clever twist that turned a story into something more haunting and mysterious and left us discussing it at length, with each of us drawing different conclusions. Though we only saw it 3 weeks ago we are going to watch it again tonight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why pay more?, 24 Feb. 2011
Brilliant TV wall bracket - solid, strong, well designed, clear instructions and easy to fit. Fitted onto our new Samsung 40" TV easily. Delivered next day and well packaged. Many thanks to 'ric' for your invaluable advice on using a 10mm drill bit rather than a 1/2" one - it made for a snug fit for the bolts and therefore more secure. (Possibly if you're going into hard brick rather than block the larger drill may be necessary.) Also, whilst the inbuilt spirit level is a good idea, the one on ours, like ric's, was way off horizontal, so do not rely on it! We'd looked at a number of other wall brackets, some of them costing nearly 10 times as much, but why pay more when this is so good?
