Genuine escapism may be the true lost art of movies, which is all the more reason to celebrate the unexpected charm of the English/Irish comedy Hear My Song.
A thoroughly original romantic comedy.
The many charms of Hear My Song hinge on its deft balance of the puckish humor of the present situation and a genuine sense of loss and roads not taken in the past.
Such an unalloyed joy is this Anglo-Irish comedy that it recalls the great Ealing classics of the '50s.
Hear My Song isn't much more than an anecdote, but the actors lend this sweet, delicate wisp of a movie a surprisingly large spirit.
Beatty does much to stem the tide of sentiment in a tough, grounded portrayal of the real Locke, a man of substance and self-awareness firmly entrenched in another life. But by the final reels, it's become too much.
I hated Hear My Song all the way through.
Completely disarming and absolutely delicious.
What makes these scenes work is the movie's sense of showmanship -- director Peter Chelsom shares Mickey's shameless, entertainment-at-any cost instincts.
Beatty brings great comic flair and vulnerability to his role as a pub-crawling, poker-playing, handkerchief-waving singer on the lam, who is, in his own way, on the level.
This is a treat.
Former stage actor Peter Chelsom... makes an auspicious feature directorial debut.
Not particularly memorable for me.
