Begin Again: Movie Review

Knightley: "So you make music." Ruffalo: "HULK PRODUCE MUSIC. KNIGHTLEY WRITE MUSIC. KNIGHTLEY WRONG ABOUT HULK. HULK SMASH."

Knightley: “So you make music.”
Ruffalo: “HULK PRODUCE MUSIC. KNIGHTLEY WRITE MUSIC. KNIGHTLEY WRONG ABOUT HULK. HULK SMASH.”

Once upon a time, I watched an absolutely adorable little film called Once and fell in love with how sincere most – if not all – of it was. While the pace of the film was a major deterrent, and I didn’t appreciate how it tried to tick all the checkboxes of being a festival-circuit favorite, there were a lot of scenes which succinctly understood emotion, sans manipulation, between two characters without the prerequisite of any particular exchange of dialogue.

The return of its director Carney in a music-driven universe makes it apparent comparisons will be made to his much loved former effort. And rightly so, because the movie boasts of some of the most amazing performers in the form of Keira Knightley (Love Actually) and actor-director Mark Ruffalo (Sympathy for Delicious). Additionally James Corden makes a return to the universe of pure music after his performance as soprano success Paul Potts in the slightly bleak One Chance.

The people who’ve watched – and loved – Once will wonder if the movie in question – it’s called Begin Again by the way – reaches the heights set by the 2006 film.

We’ve all seen movies on the music industry. Heck even Ruffalo’s own directorial debut featured bits and pieces of the musical industry. But does this film, with its amazing cast and credible director, successfully blend music into the narrative? That’s the million dollar question, really.
