Darwin was right. I'm going to start listening to her more often.

Having read her review of 'Once', I thought i'd give it a go and see how it is, especially since she said that it's a must do for music lovers. I just finished watching it and I can't stop humming the beautiful melodies that spilled out during the last one and a half hours. I can't believe they aren't professional actors, but they most certainly have to be professional musicians. If they weren't, they certainly will be now!

The movie is a little slow running, especially if you don't particularly fancy watching what is in fact a bunch of jam sessions. But it was the slow running-ness of the movie that let you fall deep into the threshold of what's happening. The music has a feel of typical British/Irish folk coupled with blues coupled with light rock. Much much like Damian Rice.

Thanks Darwin. Great movie. Even better music. Now to find the soundtrack.

Yaaay I'm glad you liked it:). I especially like how uncheesy it was in that there was such an amazing connection between the two yet they never even kissed. I wasn't surprised when I found out that the pair have started dating in real life after making the movie.

I loved the movie so much I actually bought the soundtrack off iTunes. Drop me an email and I'll mail you back with the album if you want!
