Just saw the most amazing movie last night. It had an incredibly simple story to tell. It's about an Irish busker -- street musician -- who meets a Czech immigrant struggling to support her son and mother by selling flowers, magazines and cleaning houses. She's also a musician and the movie is about them bonding through music.

It sounds so plain when you describe it, but the music is wonderful. The "guy" is the lead singer for an Irish band called The Frames. I'm going to have to check out their tunes. The "girl" is good, too, in a Bjork kind of way.

Here's a live performance of one of their songs.
