An Pluiméir Ceolmhar Once (the movie) (27) RE: Once (the movie) 27 Jul 08

I thought it was a rather sweet, low-key romantic movie, in which not much happens, but it reflects the newly multicultural Ireland of today just as 'The Commitments' reflected the Dublin of its day.

It was shot over a few weekends for a few hundred thousand euros.

It features songs by the two leading actors, who are an item in real life - one of my daughters was in a restaurant in Dublin a few months ago, and they came in, he with the guitar case in his hand, as if they had just stepped out of the movie. My daughter wanted to go over and say how much she had enjoyed it, but then decided to leave them unmolested. Lyrical songs maainly with guitar and piano accompaniment, as I recall it. At the time I saw it, there was no soundtrack CD available, but another of my daughters was able to download a bunch of tracks and make me a CD. Search for Glen(n?) Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
