A cinematic labor of love that brought out very compelling performances from everyone in front and behind the screen.
26 August 2018 | by aarosediSee all my reviews

Adrien, an irresistibly charming former wunderkid who suffered a major career setback as a classical pianist when his nerves got in the way of him coveting a prestigious prize, uses his new-found job as a piano tuner as a psychological crutch to regain his lost confidence, albeit with a slight "embellishment."

The director, Trenier, magnificently transformed a succinctly written script into a very witty vignette, marvelously showcased impressive performances from Leprince-Ringuet, as the strikingly youthful protagonist, and from Gadebois, as Adrien's affably cynical jobbing agent, Simon. and weaving the strangely appropriate song cycles from Robert Schumann's Dichterliebe to the musical score, adding further into the already irony-rich narrative.

A significant rare gem of a film, the story lingers with you long after you finished watching it.

Sly, sophisticated, subtle, stylish, scintillating...

My rating: A-plus-plussssss.
