DVD review: A Late Quartet

A grown-up drama that's a bit too tasteful and civilised for its own good, A Late Quartet stars Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir as four New York chamber musicians.

It's a humane, well-researched and impeccably acted study of the strains of a long-term working relationship, but it proceeds in an all-too-orderly fashion, with no changes in tempo or volume.
