Once is an Irish movie – an independent film. A street musician/singer-songwriter/vacuum repair man meets a Czech girl – they make beautiful music together, and help each other to grow beyond their circumstances – so in a way it’s a love story even though they don’t even kiss. The movie is really like one long music video, so if you’re not into the music, you’re going to find the movie long and painfully slow. It’s sweet, but there’s not much meat there to justify the time invested. It would have been a brilliant short film.
