Reviews [click links to read more]:

“At a time in which many Western genre films are dumbed down to the point of idiocy, any film that expects its audience to do a little work to join the narrative dots has to be seen as a good thing. And when prepared to stand on its own creative feet, Cello tells its story well, aided by decent performances and an effective music score.” Cineoutsider

“There are two notable things about Cello: some nice cello music and humorous moments involving Mi-ju’s cute as a button young daughter. Alas, everything else is lacking, with the first hour feeling like an eternity, mainly because nothing happens to warrant keeping your eyes open at all…” Beyond Hollywood

“Although the cinematography and music are quite atmospheric, the film’s attempts to balance all these elements and more means that the pacing is erratic and just as the film starts to weave its spell we cut to another aspect of the story and watch it build up to something intriguing before once again before cutting away again.” DVD Beaver
