Slow, Ambitious, Disappointing, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if You enjoy pasionless, musical recitals. The female of the duo is talented, but her performance was unidimensional and overly studied.

Don't see it if You are looking for a plot or characters. You love classic Hammerstein, not a jazzed version with electronic accompaniments.
