It's hard to find nowadays an even mildly good movie that is capable of making you leave the theater with a good feeling about yourself, about the others, about love, about people in general. This movie does just that.
I don't know the budget for this movie, but I assume it wasn't anything near the Hollywood ones. Yet, this movie has great actors and almost everyone does a great job at his/her part. The production is great, the cinematography is very good and so is the lighting and the editing.
The music is also very good indeed and what most pleased me (I usually HATE musicals) is that it never got in the way of the movie and it's storytelling, it never got more important than the other elements of the movie (the acting, the visual references, etc).
The moments where the actors sing (or dub, I can't really tell) never got boring because the music was good and the singing was kept very short and also because what they were singing actually made sense and was important part of their lines.
Normally I would give this movie a 7 out of 10 (the story could be stronger and a little bit less predictable), but what got my vote up higher to 9 out of 10 is that the general tone of the movie was really sweet.
That a great movie to watch with you loved one! Do it if you can...
