Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, stopped performing in public because of his stage fright. Years after a catastrophic performance, he reappears in public in a long awaited concert in Chicago. In a packed theater, in front of the expectant audience, Tom finds a message written on the score: ₁Play one wrong note and you die₂. Without leaving the piano, Tom must discover the anonymous sniper₂s motives and look for help without anyone realizing.

Interesting and unusual story concept, unfortunately didn't quite deliver. The premise that the pianist could perform while the antagonist 'whispers' in the pianist's ear throughout the concert was unrealistic and to the viewer, annoying.

An awful piece of mish-mash...the bad guy spits out so much dialogue...no wonder the "poor suffering angst-ridden artist" can't play the music...why the hell would anybody want to? Ferrante and Teicher...and Van Cliburn where are you fellows when you're needed?

Kerry Biche is one simpering mess...first person I've ever heard mess up "Motherless Child" ...

Absolutely no stars for this ridiculous film!

Surprisingly entertaining. Elijah Wood does a good job as the tormented pianist. Semi-clever plot, but a semi-predictable ending.

Nice music, but try the alternative ending...

Surprisingly excellent! Personally, I cant enjoy @ 70% of the CRAP that the major Hollywood studios produce, but 90% of America sucks it up.

Thinking mans film. Thrilling saga of a Gifted pianist battling his former failure and overcoming this to save his wife, and his career. Kudos to the producers...you will hear Classical music that will wonder how such treasure is reserved for the one-percenters (ie--wealthy).

Original to the core---there has never been a film remotely like this one, and I find it incredible how so many smcl users panned it here. Is this the SF Bay Area...or Modesto????

I digress...the plot IS outlandish, but I declare that this movie is more entertaining and clever than 75% of the movies in our wonderful San Mateo County Library System....a system I ADORE.

Threw in the towel after fifteen minutes. Unwatchable.

Could have been a great movie, the idea was interesting but poor directing and poor acting...

Conductor: Let me tell you something about the piano that Tom is playing. This customized Imperial Boesenndorfer with eight full octaves
belonged to Patrick himself. This is the first time this piano has been on a stage anywhere. Sadly, we don't get to keep it. Tonight when we're finished, this piano is on an 11 PM plane to Switzerland, which is probably not what the board of directors thought I meant when I assured them that tonight they
would see this instrument take flight.
