John Carney who directed Begin Again, and before that the critically and commercially successful Once, may be the world’s best captor of charm. Begin Again tells the story of a brokenhearted singer who gets discovered by a failed showbiz executive. Their ideas and love for music are all they have to face their failures and bring their creativity to life. The original songs are charming and from Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo to Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Adam Levine, and Cee-Lo Green, the cast generate sparkling chemistry and portray the story beautifully. Begin again is sweet and an effortless watch, yet very far from being your classic rom-com.

GREAT original soundtrack. Solid performances by Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley who have surprisingly good chemistry. Although the story revolves around relationships, it would be a disservice to call it a rom-com— the movie avoids many clichés that drag that genre down. Definitely worth the watch!
