A Late Quartet

Note: The following post contains no significant advances of the plot or the end of the film.

A Late Quartet is a 2012 drama written and directed by Yaron Zilberman, is the first film of the Israeli-american creator of the documentary Watermarks based on the story of the Jewish female swim team in 1930. The film  shows the story of a string quartet that in the frame of its 25th anniversary must break through hard trances that will test its stability as a quartet and as friends of life.

 A Late Quartet Scene

The story is quite good: we have a house of cards that scene to scene falls to pieces, but, what makes really significant the story is the elaborated conception of each character, all are so well structured that the spectator has no other choice but to connect with them and simultaneously feel the pain, powerlessness and anxieties that reflects the quartet as a whole and individually.

To highlight the art direction that is reflected in the interior design all the spaces are very specific to each character, lifestyles and personalities translated in objects.

Philip Seymour Hoffman A Late Quartet Scene

The strong point of this movie is without a doubt the performance: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir, interpret the quartet that for 25 years has shared life and work, each and every one are moving, improve the script and make it compelling, for the viewer is totally impossible to remain indifferent to the personal story that exposes each actor; added to this is the musical aspect, in acting terms is a 10, they seem to play and seem to feel what they are playing, is simply breathtaking.

 A Late Quarte Christopher Walken

As is to be expected the soundtrack plays an important role, not only in the plot also setting situations, voltage, sadness or momentum. The conception that the characters have about the musicians who perform makes the viewer enter in harmony with the world of chamber music and appreciate the value of it in this and other forms.

In summary, Zerorojo recommends it! Excellent performances that charge the script with an impressive force. Clarification: is pure drama, DRAMA!
