ONCE

thanks a lot to yannee..was reading through her blog and she recommended this movie..so i downloaded the movie thru tudou and watched it last nite..

"ONCE" is actually an Irish musical film taken during 2006. The movie was very realistic and down to earth, simple but beautiful..the shots were taken entirely in and around dublin and the songs were performed live..The two leads- Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova are both professional musicians and not trained actor/actress and the two became a couple in real life!! (Hansard is the singer in Irish Band "The Frames" whereas director Carney was the former bassist for the Frames).

Anyway, i was totally captivated by the music...IT WAS AWESOME!!!Hansard wrote most of the songs..and his voice is soooo powerful!!Irglova has a sweet voice as well..and i cant belif that she's only 19 this year!!i liked the songs so much that i HAVE to search for all of them today..:))) yup..i've posted the songs in my blog..HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!so do enjoy..:)
