What makes it funny and memorable in the movie is that he doesn't know how to pronounce it correctly and the words come out 'Muey Hedgehog."

I didn't hear the word "hedgehog" ANYWHERE in that film... to suppose that that's what he says sucks the magic out of a scene in which "Guy" is honestly and truly trying to say something in her language. Clearly, he botches the pronunciation in a humorous way, but... come on.

I don't speak Czech either, but Hansard DEFINITELY does not say "hedgehog."

I refer you to the trailer...
She pronounces it flawlessly, but he does not. I love finding someone else who is so passionate about this criminally underappreciated film. I think that Hansard's character is very sincere, but knows he didn't hear it right the first time and so tried to cover his botched delivery with sweet comedy. I don't think it sucks the magic out of the scene, but adds a layer of charm.

If they had subtitled her answer, that might have sucked out the magic. He doesn't know her reply, and neither should we.

I can only hope our discussion inspires more people to check out this wonderful film.
