A beautiful film with equally wonderful music. Since seeing this film we have seen co-star Glen Hansard perform in both England and Italy, both times opening for, and playing with, Eddie Vedder.
Story: A vacuum repairman (Glen Hansard) moonlights as a street musician and hopes for his big break. One day a Czech immigrant (Marketa Irglova), who earns a living selling flowers, approaches him with the news that she is also an aspiring singer-songwriter. The pair decide to collaborate, and the songs that they compose reflect the story of their blossoming love.
