    It's playing the art houses and smaller independent theatres now, but it is just wonderful. It's basically about an Irish street musician who meets a pretty (married) girl. The relationship and the music that comes from that had me in tears several time--OK, most of the time. The guy is from a band called the Frames and is just great; the girl is a Chezch and just brilliant. I heartily recommend it--especially as a date movie. :cool:

    Once is an amazing movie. I saw it three times...great each time.

    I also bought the soundtrack, which is fabulous.

    Yup--I've been twice. I took my guitar player and we've been in writing frenzy. And the soundtrack is just great.:cool:

    A singer at work recommended it to me - she said it was amazing. Looks like this one is now on my list....

    Oh, great. That doesn't make me want to slit my wrists or anything. :rolleyes:

    I doesn't seem like that--even at the end of the movie. Bittersweet maybe, but not heartbreaking. It's just perfect.:cool:

    I was watching Craig Ferguson last night, and There was a guy playing guitar, and a girl playing piano. And they either played on the soundtrack, or they're in it.
    None the less, they're KILLER.

    Pianist needs some emotion though. She's boring as sin to watch.
