The moment all artists live for.
Probably the one thing I would say about this movie that is even remotely negative, is that if you don’t like the music, then you are completely out of luck. Otherwise This movie is about a Guy (no name) and a Girl (same deal) who meet on the street while Guy is busking, a side gig from his day job as a vacuum cleaner repairman. The two form a bond through music, as they jam together in a music store, then ultimately they go through a weekend recording his songs before he goes off to re-unite with his lost love. Trying to explain this movie to someone who hasn’t seen it, it just seems like a movie about nothing, ’cause the plot is so spare. But everything felt true–the dialogue, the way the two musicians relate, the way it captured the feeling you get when you see something you’ve created become real. This movie totally won me over after the recording session, when it is early in the morning, the studio technician and the band go out to do the “car test”–seeing if the songs still sound good on inferior speakers. It is at this point you feel this “seizing of the sword” moment of triumph for Guy–this is what he has worked for, this is what he has created. It is a moment that all artists live for, and this is the reason I will go see it again.
A Wonderful Little Film
At the persistent urging of a friend, I saw “Once”.
Rarely am I compelled to write a comment about a movie, let alone yearning to see said movie again – immediately.
I have this sinking feeling that “Once” won’t be around much longer in theaters (God knows, we need every available screen for “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry”) so give yourself a treat: go see it!
Be warned…you may be so affected you’ll buy the soundtrack, check out all the related YouTube videos and won’t be able to get it out of your head.
