Fifth about The Seventh

Begin Again

Begin Again: in spite of the simple, old story, John Carney’s film is an interesting watch; it is driven by the passion of art (music in particular) that, for being so earnest, is very relatable. The great looking cast (Mark Ruffalo is a great presence, Hailee Steinfeld and Catherine Keener good additions for the time they are on, but it’s Keira Knightley, who has a nice singing voice, who is the highlight) and the nice songs go a long way to make it a pleasant ride. By the other hand, visually the film uses the bane of many indie features: the unjustified (for the most part) handheld shot selection; the reason is not stylistic, it’s economical.
