Grand Piano (2013)

Director: Eugenio Mira. Cast: Elijah Wood, John Cusack, Kerry Bishé, Alex Winter, Dee Wallace. 90 min. Rated R. Spain. Mystery/Thriller.

Imagine the movie Speed ... with the hero sitting at a piano! The prodigy of a recently deceased piano grand-master starts playing at his first concert after a 5-year hiatus, but sees a message on his sheet music: "Play one wrong note and you die". This throws him into a frenzy to find the killer's identity/location/motivation, and save both himself and his sitting duck wife in the audience, all while expertly playing the piano. With obvious references to Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much (and negligibly implausible moments), this is a joyride not to be missed.
