    Great performances of both the two "Grandes Dames" of acting, Maggie Smith and Dame Judi Dench, and German newcomer Daniel Brühl and Star-Trek-star David Warner. A musical drama film with great emotions and music, some lacks in story but outstanding performances of the actors.

    Charles Dance's d├ębut feature is an impressive achievement.
  2. It is to Dance's considerable credit that he never lets the filmmaking overtake the understated storytelling.
