Movie Info

The owner of a British nightclub attempts to do the impossible by coaxing a legendary Irish tenor out of retirement for a once-in-a-lifetime show in this engagingly quirky comedy. The owner, Mickey O'Neill, is particularly desperate to land a performance by the great Josef Locke, as his already questionable reputation was ruined when he booked an impostor claiming to be Locke. Now only providing a show by the real thing can make up for it. Trouble is, Locke fled England several decades before to

Ned Beatty gives a great performance in the Ireland-set charmer.

Audience Reviews for Hear My Song

I remember Hear my Song being the big hit of 1991 and then it just seem to disappear of the radar. It's taken me this long to get round to seeing but the wait was worth it. It's no masterpiece but the story is great and Peter Chelsom has this way of telling a story that really works. It's a mix of his skill as a director, the excellent cast and that early 90's magic that really makes this film work. Ned Beatty and Adrian Dunbar are perfect choices to the two lead roles, James Nesbitt still hasn't achieved the respect he deserves in my mind but I'm quite glad he hasn't disappeared to Hollywood at the same time, I'm surprised his performance here didn't make more of an impact into his career as I thought it was brilliant. A great story with a memorable finish, weird how everyone seems to have forgotten about it!
