      Audience Member this movie crushes the souls of music lovers. the dancing is amazing and the story line is intriguing. but the huge let down is that the main actor cannot clearly play the violin. it is imperative that people understand that music and musicianship does matter and that you cannot just sword fight with 50,000 dollar bows like it is nothing. #musicrepresentation Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      David Stratton The Australian Music lovers will find plenty to enjoy in this intriguing film. Rated: 3.5/5 May 20, 2016 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) While the chamber music on the soundtrack rarely becomes central in its own right, Highly Strung is constructed like a piece of music, divided into movements and weaving together multiple themes. Rated: 3.5/5 May 20, 2016 Full Review Jim Schembri 3AW Fascinating, surprisingly absorbing documentary about the formation of the new Australian String Quartet...But what starts out as a straightforward doco morphs into Spinal Tap With Strings when personality differences threaten to break up the band. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 26, 2016 Full Review David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Adelaide Review When they have to return the Guadagninis, it's like they're surrendering a loved child, and the extreme emotion is either heart-rending (if you're a devotee of classical music and high culture) or perhaps ever-so-subtly funny. Jul 14, 2016 Full Review CJ Johnson Film Mafia Hicks was there at the right time and place to capture some truly weird and remarkable twists and turns amongst the ensemble. As they say, "you couldn't make this stuff up". Rated: 3.5/5 May 24, 2016 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Sunday Age The film is rarely staid and it is ego, whether endowed by the instruments or not, that often shines through in the overly busy structure that leaps from one tangent to the next. Rated: 3/5 May 23, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
