Go see the movie ONCE.

I've gone twice so far. It's incredibly good. Glen Hansard sings with so much passion. And Marketa Irglova charms you the second she shows up on the screen.

I went straight from the theater to the record store to by the soundtrack (luckily I saw it at a mall).

So go. It's the first moivie in a long while that I KNOW I'm buying when it comes to DVD.

I heartily agree. Hopefully it gets a bit of love come Oscar time, since at least one of the songs deserves a nomination. Once is also one of the all-time great date movies.

OK, you convinced me! I almost went this weekend because of your previous mention, but I didn't. So this week, I go! :-)

BTW, since we're recommending movies, if anyone doesn't mind subtitles, "La Vie En Rose", about Edith Piaf, is excellent. Very moving. People clapped at the end. If anyone had a life of hard-knocks and managed to rise above it for a while, it was Piaf, wow.

The movie flow is non-linear, a lot like LOST, with flashbacks/fowards/etc. Piece of cake for LOST fans, right? :-)

Too bizare - my friend and I were talking about this at dinner last night. It's one of those small, but v. well done movies that hope will do well based on the word of mouth buzz.

The only drag re: a possible Oscar song nomination is that the Academy just changed the rules and you can't send out a copy of the soundtrack "for your consideration" you can now only send a copy of the film.

I hope that this movie gets at least one song nomination but this new rule may hurt its chances.

But - you can still go and enjoy the movie, it's a gem in a year that's been kinda lame, I think.

Me encantó Once. Hice lo mismo que tú, le dediqué un post en mi blog, solo que un poco más largo.
Una música preciosa.

I know I am a bit late to your blog, but I am so happy you enjoyed this film. As a Dubliner and a Lost fan it makes me incredibly happy that you did :D

You should totally check them out if you're going to be back in LA for the summer. They're playing the Bowl in July, I think as 'The Swell Season'. Highly recommended, A double plus.
