Consensus: Grand Piano is so tense in its best moments -- and appealingly strange overall -- that it remains rewarding in spite of its flaws.

Director Eugenio Mira manages to keep Grand Piano visually stimulating even when writer Damien Chazelle's script gets silly.

Not all the right notes are hit in "Grand Piano," but for an elegantly schizoid B movie, it's more B-sharp than B-flat.

Play or Die. Good Film! Grand Piano can easily be described as Phone Booth in a concert with some speed thrown in for good measure. It goes for the enclosed… More
