After connecting with the shy Madeline, a jazz trumpeter embarks on a quest for a more gregarious paramour, but through a series of twists and turns punctuated by an original score, the two lovers seem destined to be together.
This film tells the story of a famous pianist who makes a comeback performance after five years of hiatus. He gets threatened with death by a mysterious man during his performance. He bakes his way round his very real threat, and his stage fright. The plot up to here sounds very intriguing and engaging, and yes, the first half of the film is quite good. However, the second half loses steam, and the ending is just really disappointing. So we figure out why the guy wants the piece played, so what happens next? The film proper is just seventy minutes long, they could have at least developed the plot more, especially the ending. It's a pity, but "Grand Piano" was a nice mystery thriller that is spoiled by the poor ending.
