A busker and a Bis Issue seller meet on the streets of Dublin. He also repairs hoovers, which is handy, as she has a problem with hers. He fixes it. She asks him to sing. They talk and chat and sing and write songs. Eventually they even record a song.
Not much of a storyline it it?
But this is still a very charming, if slight film. And if you are a fan of Glen Hansard’s music then I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Personally, I like a lot of The Frames stuff, but I don’t love any of it, and often think that Hansard gets a bit too whiney at times. I couldn’t listen to him all day long. Still I did enjoy the music in this film, and that is important because there is a lot of it.
I’ve tagged this film a romance, but it isn’t really. It is more of a film about people getting on in life. A moment in time. All that sort of thing. It is a small film but an enjoyable one.
