Over the weekend David and I sat down and finally watched the movie that’s been sitting on our TV cabinet for close to two months: Once.
It’s a shame that the description lists it as a “musical,” because the term summons up images quite different than what you get in this movie. Yes, about sixty percent of the movie is music, but there are no spinning parasols or dance routines.
I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s on my list of favorites for certain.
You probably know one of the songs from the movie, which won the Oscar for Best Original Song: “Falling Slowly.”
Disclaimer: this is an Irish flick, and the language is pretty salty.
