Touching.

When going into a musical, the subtle approach is hardly ever taken. Not to say it’s better one way or the other, but Once proves without a doubt that a quiet, bittersweet, subtle approach can work wonders, and give a new level to your typical “indie film”. Not a lot of films can so easily mesh so many genres together, and make it work so well. You’ve got your basic style and presentation... read more

Just like Before Sunrise, a new classic directed by Richard Linklater, Once is a magical film that through its narrative apparently simple, reaches a victory that escapes most films of the same genre, picturing with authenticity and feeling the precise instant in which two human beings find themselves in love for each other. The difference here is that when Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy were seduced... read more

An amazing modern musical...

Girl: "How come you don't play during daytime? I see you here everyday."
Guy: "During the daytime people would want to hear songs that they know, just songs that they recognize. I play these song at night or I wouldn't make any money. People wouldn't listen."
Girl: "I listen."

The film industry has witnessed its fair share of low-budget independent movies that yielded ... read more

"18.9. Näkyvä musiiki on suuressa osassa ja hyvinhän se toimiikin. Hienojen musiikillisten ansioittensa lomassa Once on myös ollakseen moraalinen kasvatusopas modernin ihmisen selkärangattomuudesta. Tahtoisin pitää elokuvasta kokonaisuutena enemmän, mutta 80-minuuttisesta kestosta huolimatta siinä on liian paljon tyhjää pääosakaksikon roolisuoritusten ympärillä."

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2016: Last Half (51 movies items)

"Rewatch | Third time. Once is one of my all time favorite films. An Irish low-budgeted musical that arguably is more about promoting Glen Hansard's music than anything else. Yet there's something naturally wonderful about Once. The simplicity of it is rather beautiful. There's nothing fancy or grand about it. It's a very simple story of a street musician who meets a girl. The story itself is basically also just that. Which is totally fine, as it gives these two characters room to breathe and g"

"16.3.2016 Viime aikoina on tullut kuunneltua jonkun verran folkia, jonka takia tämäkin filmi alkoi kiinnostaa. Once onkin varsin positiivisella asenteella rullaava romanttinen tarina. Homma ei missään vaiheessa ala tuntua päälle liimatulta ja kappaleet sopivat hyvin tarinan kuljetukseen. Loppuratkaisukin on mielestäni onnistunut ja positiivinen fiilis jää elämään. Soundtrackia tuli kuunneltua tänään työmatkalla. Suosittelen sitä kaikille."
