Once

Brilliant! That’s the word to describ Once, a poignant film about a nameless guy and girl (that’s how they’re referred to in the credits) who meet by chance in Dublin. He’s a vacuum repairman cum busker.  She’s immigrated from the Czech Republic and sells flowers and cleans houses. They meet by chance brought together by music, honesty and perception. They develop a relationship that defies easy classification as they both have complicated lives and sensitive hearts.

Neither has much money. His guitar is just pathetic and she has no stylish outfits, but he plays well and she’s beautiful. It was quite refreshing to watch two people, in such ordinary clothes and settings,  engage each other, not saying all they want to, developing a unique relationship, that I doubt either will ever forget.

They do write songs together and sing, beautifully. I’ve ordered the soundtrack.
