Such beautiful music
16 March 2002 | by calvertfanSee all my reviews

The music of this film is truly breathtaking. Mario is the big star and his songs will take your breath away, but Carla's will leave you just as speechless.

The pair met on a boat. He was traveling with his opera company and was to share a berth with another singer, until the director kicked up a fuss at being put in room 13, even if it WAS a single room, so Mario kindly switched with him (watch for the argument between the director and the other singer (who is rather large), over who will get the bottom bunk. The singer finally relents and lets the director have the bottom, telling him he'll be sorry. The director realises this when the weight of the other man makes the top bunk sag down on top of him!)

Mario meets Carla in his room, she is a stowaway on the boat, whom he hilariously, but successfully, hides.

But all is not well, the company's gig in Monte Carlo (where they are headed) is canceled, and it's up to Mario to save the day, with a little help (and hindrance) from Carla. Another scene worth mentioning is when he is in jail and she desperately needs to talk to him, yet is not allowed, and the only way she could get to him is by being in jail herself. She gets herself in quite neatly, but missed Mario by a whisker as he is released; while she must stay out the extra 8 hours all alone.

My Heart Is Calling is a joyous and sweet comedy, with beautiful music to match. Don't miss it!
