Movie Review

ONCE

I’ve been a bit under the weather this week, so I’ve watched a couple of videos. Today I enjoyed “Once”. A sweet story of a street performer and a young mother. I watched it with the sub-titles turned on. It is an Irish film and I sometimes had trouble understanding dialogue. I didn’t, however, need sub-titles to understand the great music. Other than some language that is perhaps typical of the UK, but makes me cringe at times, this movie is just full of wonderful moments. As they enjoy each other’s company, spending time together, helping each other and forming a small band, they both pine for lost relationships of the past. The harmonies are marvelous, the tone of the movie is kindness and friendship and I found myself rewinding so I could hear their duets just one more time. This is a feel-good movie and I loved it.

  1. I loved ‘Once’ too. A friend lent me the DVD saying I have to watch it because it’s about a street performer (and I am one, too). The scene where the busker runs after a guy who stole money from his bag rang very true – I had that happen to me, too, and it ended the same way as in the movie. From there on the movie kept growing on me as it went on.All the best,Saw Ladyhttp://www.SawLady.com/blog
