"A really... wow movie"
5 stars"

I saw this film when I went to my Uncles theatre and even though it was free for me I would have paid because it's just that good. ‘Falling Softly’ was the one that won the 2008 Academy award for best song. And I agree. This was one of those kinds of movies where you just feel, and pretty much all of that had to do with the music. I enjoyed almost every song on this soundtrack and I hope you do too.

Description

Composers: Glen Hansard; Marketa Irglova.

While many movies use actors to play musicians, the Irish indie film ONCE enlisted singer-songwriters Glen Hansard (of the Frames) and Marketa Irglova to portray two Dubliners on the edge of romance. The couple's real-life chemistry not only translated to a compelling, crowd-pleasing tale, it yielded a subtly beautiful soundtrack, which consists largely of thoughtful chamber-pop tunes by Hansard, some of which previously appeared (in slightly altered form) on the Frames' THE COST and his prior collaboration with Irglova, THE SWELL SEASON. Highlights of the collection include the gentle "Falling Slowly" and the urgent "When Your Mind's Made Up," tracks that elegantly echo the emotional ups and downs of the lauded film.
