Quartet — Letting the past go, and living the present as it is — 9*/10

Quartet is an easy going and lovely movie about a beautiful and grandiose house for retired musician and its four most preeminent residents. Love and talent mingle with uncertainty.

The house itself is astounding, the music beautiful, the photography breathtaking, the story simple yet quite endearing and situations most funny at times. There's a small amount of intrigue and a rascal, but they're just there to spice things up. Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, and Pauline Collins are great as the main characters, accompanied by a solid performance of Sheridan Smith as the house doctor.

If all retiree could live this well, the world would be a better place.

Unless you'd be bored by the subject of retired musician, you should watch this.
