Musical gem
14 February 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"This film is dedicated to those grand old song writers of yesterday whose melodies are the folk songs of today. Their battle against the music pirates who robbed them of their just rewards, is the inspiration for this story."

And so the film starts. A delightful little musical, with some truly beautiful songs. The film starts to drag a bit after a while (it's about an hour and 3 quarters long), but the songs you'll never tire of. A heartwarming little piece that is well deserved a watch if you manage to catch it :)
