Critic Reviews for The Sonata

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (5)

Andrew Desmond's feature-length narrative debut The Sonata is a literate, methodically paced throwback thriller that plays a little like a Hammer production from the mid-to-late 1960s.

Ignoring the fact that nothing much is going on here, director Andrew Desmond plods along trying to make you believe otherwise.

Top Critic

A thriller that, despite decent moment-to-moment pacing, drags out its anticipatory finger-twiddling far too long.

January 10, 2020 | Full Review…

First-time feature-director Andrew Desmond brings such confident panache to the supernatural thriller "The Sonata" that it almost doesn't matter how derivative the plot is.

January 9, 2020 | Full Review…

A leaden Gothic ghost story whose high-gloss imagery fails to disguise its low-energy plot.

January 9, 2020 | Full Review…

[The Sonata] is a truly immersive film which takes on the look and feel of classic ghost tales.
