Editorial Reviews

Unfinished Song is a funny and inspiring story about Arthur (Terence Stamp), a curmudgeonly old soul, who is perfectly content sticking with his dull daily routine until his beloved wife (Vanessa Redgrave) introduces him to a local seniors singing group. The group is led by the youthful and charming Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) and her unexpected friendship with Arthur reignites his passion for new adventures and shows us all life should be celebrated at any age.

I saw this film yesterday at the WXPN Music Film Festival in Philadelphia (coordinated by the Philadelphia Film Society). I truly enjoyed it. I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't list the two actors with major roles and well-known names - Terrence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave - in the main listing. But no big deal.

The film is basically a fictional version of the documentary "Young @ Heart" which came out a few years ago. (If you liked that film, you'll enjoy this as well.)It's about a group of British senior citizens who enter a choral competition by singing rock and heavy metal songs. It's funny and heartwarming. There is a serious back-story too which adds to the enjoying. And the music is great with Stamp performing a Billy Joel song and Celine Dion crooning a new Diane Warren-penned song over the closing credits.

I'll certainly await the DVD of this film to see what "bonus features" they added.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take A Sad Song And Make It Better July 10, 2013
Format:DVD
What a joy it is to see consummate actors of the calibre of Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp on the big screen. And while they may not be the youthful handsome and beautiful actors we remember from "Far From the Madding Crowd" and "Camelot," they remind us that, yes, there is still a beauty in old age. (Watching this film, I was reminded that the great photographer Imogene Cunningham published near the end of her life-- I believe she was at least 90-- beautiful photographs of old people.)

Stamp as Arthur and Redgrave as his wife Marion play two characters in the twilight of their lives and are in a word, brilliant. But Gemma Arterton as Elizabeth, the music teacher, and Christopher Eccleston as Arthur and Marion's son James give outstanding performances as well. (The tension between Arthur and his son James is palpable. And the friendship that develops between the old Arthur and the young Elizabeth is one of the pluses of the film.) The plot is simple and could have been washed out to the British sea by a lesser director (Paul Andrew Williams directs) and less than stellar acting as the actors carry the film. (Elizabeth gets a group of seniors ready to perform heavy metal music for a contest.)

I went to see this movie with some trepidation since the rumors I had heard were that it was a tearjerker and I had heard the words "too sentimental" bandied about. I worried in vain. Of course there are sad moments in this movie-- to experience Terence Stamp singing Billy Joel's "Llullabye (Goodnight, my Angel)" will make you tear up and is worth the price of admission to the movie-- but there are scenes that will make your smile as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The healing power of music July 12, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This excellent film is about the healing power of music being the key to unlocking expressions of feelings, even in advanced age. The superb British cast performs beautifully, with a masterful, curmudgeonly Terrance Stamp, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Eccleston and Gemma Arterton as the vulnerable young music teacher who gives joy and meaning to the lives of her aged choir. Even if the ending is somewhat predictable, it still packs a wallop, with not a dry eye in the theater. Great actors, understated plotting, sensitive direction by Paul Andrew Williams, intelligent dialogue. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Marion's Song February 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It is too bad that this film 'Unfinished Song' came out so late in the game. With the other UK films of baby boomers already seen, this is a bit redundant. That said, the performances by Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave make up for any lessing.

Marion, played by Vanessa Redgrave, has a terminal disease and intends to live her life fully. Her husband, Arthur, as played by Terence Stamp, has always been stoic, no fun, Arthur. Marion is the only one who seems to understand Arthur. Marion loves to sing with her pensioner's group, her friends are there. Arthur drops her by and then leaves or stays outside and smokes. He cares for her, all by himself, he wants to do the controlling. They have a son and a granddaughter, but Arthur never seemed to get on with the boy. As time goes by we get to know the members of the choir, and the young woman leading it. This is a story well told, but it does fall into the dramatic fold. However, I wouldn't really know because tears were streaming.

A lovely British film with a lot to say. It has been said before and is not new, that is why I assume the film did not hit the big time. But for those of us who enjoy these films, it is a winner. I loved the cast, recognize a few faces in the choir, and would love to see this turned into a series. What could be better than old senior farts singing their hearts out?

4.0 out of 5 stars Real Movie News DVD review October 5, 2013
By Ryan
Format:DVD
Unfinished Song is filled with a predictable and emotionally manipulative material, handled with such grace and dignity by the cast and director that I was constantly surprised by the film's ability to move me. Utilizing music and melodrama in such a way that is never overwrought or exaggerated for effect, Unfinished Song is mild entertainment which creeps up on you in profoundly unexpected ways. Even the supporting characters feel very natural, making it very difficult to notice when anyone is "acting."

Terence Stamp heads up the cast as Arthur, a cranky old man who has become accustomed to his habits and routines with the only person he opens up to, his wife (Vanessa Redgrave). When cancer threatens to take that foundation from Arthur, she suddenly joins an elderly singing group. Arthur is pulled into the group, finding solace in the friendship of the group's young teacher, Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton). Unfinished Song is a film about grief, but manages to keep a light touch on the material.

The music in Unfinished Song is simple but effective, never appearing too polished or unbelievable. There is more heart than talent in the voices, but that works wonders for the sincerity of the film's story. We are not meant to be blown away by the vocal abilities, but instead get swept up in the openness with which they sing their song.
