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

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

My Top 10 Favourite Movie Scenes (10 movies items)

"Falling SlowlyThis is another moment that kick-starts and defines the romance central to the film. Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová (whose characters are never named) decide to play together in a music shop. He starts to play one of his songs – which turns out to be, of course, Falling Slowly – and she starts to learn the chords and join in on the piano, so that soon they're in perfect harmony. I just can't argue with a couple bonding over music! :-) The song itself deservedly won an Oscar"

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (128 movies items)

" - Rewatched | Fourth 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, and that's about it. Which is totally fine, as it gives these two characters room to breathe and grow naturally without "

"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."
