ReviewSource Variety
Review Like its gifted, but emotionally frigid, pianist hero, "Allegro" is filled with technical virtuosity but short on real feeling. Sophomore effort by Danish helmer Christoffer Boe offers a mix of cerebral sci-fi conceits, baroque visual texture and romantic melancholy similar to that in his Cannes kudo-reaping debut, "Reconstruction." Still, pic is remarkably original and reps further evidence of a unique directorial vision...Partly inspired by Jean-Luc Godard's "Alphaville" (as name of Boe's production company suggests), "Allegro" proffers a low-budget, high-concept brand of sci-fi that's heavier on "fi" than "sci." Boe's Zone reps a rich metaphor for how the lovelorn shun places where traumas happened, while the story's arc works through intriguing ideas about the solipsism of talent, memory and pain...As if trying to fill the emotional vacuum, film's surface offers a kaleidoscope of striking imagery, particularly favoring inky nightscapes sliced by strings and pools of light. Lenser Manuel Alberto Claro employs different stocks, including Super-16, DV and 35mm, to signal shifts between separate layers of reality...Subtle visual effects are used to render glinting, rippling trompe l'oeuil walls of the Zone. Production design favors cool neutrals to create atmosphere of cosmopolitan chic. Rest of the tech package is classy.
