A charming, real film..,
I decided to see this on a whim, not really knowing what it was about. It was just what I needed. As someone who has been going through a lot of stress lately and not really listening to music, it reminded me to bring the music back. If the songs were not good, there is no way that I would have made it through the film.
A man and a woman meet while he is playing guitar and singing in the street for money. She wants to hear more. He is a little jaded from his last relationship, but he can't help but like her. Later on, he finds out that she plays piano and they come together in the piano store to play a song together. That was my favorite song in the movie. I found myself glued to the screen, and then, my mind wandering, because it reminded me that I need to discover some new music.
Things don't always end in life they way they do in Hollywood movies (and I'm glad for that) but you still can't help dropping a few tears. So touching and beautiful. I will definitely buy the soundtrack.

I liked your reflection drawing on your own life with a spare synopsis of the story. Beautiful review. JP

I almost regret this, but here goes. I enjoyed the music to a degree, but THE song is so irritating with THE repetition of THE line...it just stays in my head and...oh well. Not the point of my comment anyway. This movie shows the intensity of two people that really fall in love with each other. But true to your comments, this is not Hollywood-formula and since they both had lives before they meet (real-life) there is no way they can overcome the obstacles much less their fear of loving again. I better not say anymore.
