Exquisite MUSICsuperb cast ably Directed byYaron Zilberman.   Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener, and Mark Ivanir play the members of a marvelous and successful string quartet.  The young (age 23) Imogen Poots plays the daughter of Keener and Hoffman.  This drama, perhaps I should really call it a melodrama, was simply marvelous. It actually brought me in tears in parts. Walken's character discovers he is in the early stages of Parkinson's disease.   The film has drama, some humor (not a lot) and  emphasizes the intensity of the dedication and concentration of true musicians.   Excellent film.
