Trivia

Josef Locke was a real Irish tenor who enjoyed great success after the Second World War, to the extent that, in 1948, he was earning approximately £2,000 a week. Then in the 1950s the tax-man became interested in his earnings and Locke subsequently disappeared. Around about the same time, a new singer of similar build and vocal style called Mr X started appearing in clubs and everyone started to believe that this was in fact Locke under a new guise. Among those who were particularly convinced were the legions of women whom Locke had reputedly slept with, as the man had an enviable reputation as a lady-killer. See more »

A quirky offbeat charmer with fabulous music
6 March 2000 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

The film is full of charm and amusement and I love the plot-line. The characters are witty and warm and likeable. It's quirky and some times the plot is hard to follow, but again, the characters are so real and likeable, they draw you in.

Then there's the music. I never knew I liked Irish tenors until I saw this movie.

The only truly confusing thing is that it is hard to tell when the movie is set. It seems almost timeless and yet there is a definite timeframe referred to in the film.

Adrian Dunbar is a wonderful actor and carries the film along, although Ned Beatty succeeds in stealing it half-way through! Tara Fitzgerald is underutilized as the romantic cause of the hero's journey, but does well with what she's given. The actor who plays the hero's friend is also quite wonderful.
