2 of 5

“..the plot, alas, is equally predictable. Though dying of cancer, Marion remains a dedicated member of the center's chorus, which is enthusiastically practicing for an upcoming musical competition..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..the film is ultimately about the redemption of Arthur, him finding his heart and reconnecting with his son before it's too late..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..Stamp finds more honest (and less condescending) humor in his grumpy character, who is forced to take center stage and mount a rebellion when the choir's participation in a competition is threatened by a totally contrived obstacle..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..it may be the equivalent of NBA stars tossing crumpled paper into a wastebasket, but you're no less compelled to watch old pros go through the motions..”
by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York]

“..in the film, a comment is made about the power of a voice being not in technique but in the journey it took to get there. Stamp and Redgrave and living embodiments of that philosophy..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 5

“..but "Unfinished Song" is a movie so geared toward hitting its spots, it amounts to emotional Muzak rather than something truly played live..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..away from the choral setting, Unfinished Song is an uplifting ode to the celebration of life at any age..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..and I liked the message that what makes a song beautiful is not always the quality of the voice singing it but the heart and soul behind it..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
