Sooo, as you maybe know, I’m a huuuuge fan of movies, I just love watching them. And yes, I take that very serious, because a movie isn’t just some sort of time spending thing for me. It’s more. It’s a way to live someone elses story, to be them, to have their dreams, their fears. It’s basically a one-and-a-half-trip into another life. And I just love getting caught up in such stories.
And whenever I watch a REALLY good movie, I just like to share my excitement for that amazing piece of work, and that’s what I want to do right now.
So, a few days ago I watched a movie called “Begin again” (or in German: “Can a song save your life” – I seriously have no idea why they change an English title to another English title for German speaking countries, but okayyy) and it was freaking amazing. It combines two awesome things, namely music and a good story.
A short movie description:
The movie is about the formerly successful record label executive Dan Mulligan (Mark Ruffalo) and the talented singer-songwriter Gretta James (Keira Knightley), both living in New York City. Dan is at the end of his career and has already given up on life as he runs into Gretta, who’s come to a complicated part of her relationship with her rockstar boyfriend Dave Kohl (Adam Levine) and who’s just on her way home to Bristol again. And as the two get to know each other, the encounter slowly turns into a promising collaboration between the two talents creating a wonderful movie full of happiness, amazing actors and breathtaking music.
I can only recommend this amazing movie, if any of you want to spend their evening with slowly sliding into a world of music, talented normal people just like you and me and pure happiness. A feel-good-movie all over.
Have fun watching the movie and thanks for reading. x
Ps: I totally fell in love with the title song “Lost Stars” by Adam Levine. You can go and check it out here, if you want to.
