A movie that has plenty of good music, but little acting. "Quartet," is a movie about a retirment home for musicians who tries to put on a gala and attempts to bring four members of the Quartet beck together. But that sort thing won't be easily. It's like getting The Beatles back together again. The film takes place at Beechman House a retirement home for retired musicans. Take away the music, it's no different from the retirement home in "Cocoon." Yes, I expect losts of acting in this movie and there are, but not enough to my liking. I only came here for the music and thare are plenty of that, but little else. It's the first movie by Actor turned Director Dustin Hoffman. He could just direct more movie like Clint Eastwood, or he could just make one like Charles Laughton in the 1955 film "Night of the Hunter." It's up to Hoffman to decide that. He did make a pretty little movie, but not a good movie.
