5.0 out of 5 stars Best Film I have seen For Ages, 5 Jan 2013
This review is from: Quartet [DVD] (DVD)
You only have to look at the Cast to see what acting genius's we have in this film. They do not let us down. It is a really feel good film that has us in laughter, tears, and the stars give totally realistic performances.

To see Billy Connelly without his trademark locks and beard makes you wonder what is coming, but one soon learns that Dustin Hoffman has used his strength (hhis humour) to full advantage, albeit slightly more refined but with the notable twinkle in his eye.

Tom Courtney reigns supreme as does Maggie Smith, their story is a story within a story. Pauline Collins gives a stirling performance as someone who is suffering from dementia. Trevor Peacock, Michael Gambon...the list goes on.

As an opera fan I loved the music however friends who were privalged with me to see a preview of this film also loved the music. We all came out smiling.

This is Dustin Hoffman's first film as a director and what a fine one it is.

Anyone who loved The Marigold Hotel will want this in their library.

Oh no. Have "marigold" and love it. Quartet is quite dreadful by comparison. Some people are very easily pleased, it seems.
