Muted, thin, bittersweet (i.e., mostly sweet, with a bitter aftertaste) musical romance about a Dublin busker (Glen Hansard, founder of a rock band named The Frames) and an immigrant Czech pianist and single mom (Marketa Irglova) with whom he feels himself in tune. Frugally produced, scruffily photographed, the film has its modest charms, though these have been rather obstreperously oversung by the chorus of critics. Among those charms, the heart-on-sleeve folkie music isn't high. Written and directed by John Carney. 2007.
