It is a masterpiece. I started to watch it half asleep and I was amazed.

"The Zone", in "Allegro", is a televised screen(like a desert vista in a Road Runner cartoon that the coyote would smash into) that contains a static representation of a Copenhagen neighborhood, which to me, vaguely recalls the use of back "The Zone", in "Allegro", is a televised screen(like a desert vista in a Road Runner cartoon that the coyote would smash into) that contains a static representation of a Copenhagen neighborhood, which to me, vaguely recalls the use of back screen projection in Lars Von Trier's "Zentropa". So does the narration, even though it's not in second-person. If you ever wondered how a film scripted by Charlie Kaufman would look in the hands of an intellectually rigorous(rather than playful) filmmaker like Von Trier, "Allegro" is your movie. How Zetterstrom(Ulrich Thomsen) enters another world, an absurdest world("The Zone"), is reminiscent of "Being John Malkovich", and his memory erasure of a true love, Andrea(Helena Christensen), is similar to "Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind". Those two films were fun. "Allegro" is not. It does, however, has something interesting to say about the foolishness of loving your craft more than a human being. When Andrea abandons Zetterstorm after a recital, he erases her from his mind. When he loses his ability to play the piano, "Allegro" shows us how empty our lives are without love. Without his talent, Zetterstorm is nothing. Expand
