Fifth about The Seventh

Quartet

QuartetQuartet: a number of good things about this nice little, light drama. First and foremost, the acting is excellent: Dustin Hoffman, despite directing a feature for the first time, knows a thing of two about the subject (and shows some surprisingly intereting camera work); but with a cast of that quality, it would need a director trying to ruin the experience to make the acting bad. The collection of characters, fleshed out and alive, fell true to the story, a dignified and rich tale about old age. And, needless to say, the music is beautiful.
