The romantic Irish musical Once is the inspirational tale of two kindred spirits who find each other on the bustling streets of Dublin. One is a street musician (Glen Hansard from the Irish band The Frames) who lacks the confidence to perform his own songs. The other is a young Czech immigrant (Markéta Irglová) trying to find her way in a strange new town. During an eventful week, they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story. As their lives intertwine, they discover each other’s talents and push one another to realise what each had only dreamt about before. Once is their inspiring story. Written and directed by John Carney (On the Edge, Bachelors Walk), Once is a nod to the classic musicals of the past, while it is also grounded in the bohemian world of struggling young Dubliners that he knew from his days as a young musician. This gentle and intimate tale went on to win an Academy Award for best original song, Falling Slowly, and became the inspiration for the Tony Award winning Broadway musical. (Ireland, 2007, 85 min., color, 35mm • Director/Writer: John Carney • Cast: Glen Hansard, Markéta Irglová, Hugh Walsh)
