DVD Movie Review: ‘Once’ (2007)


Set in Dublin, this drama teams up a singer who plays his guitar on the street for cash with younger girl who can hold her own on the piano and vocals. The movie is about relationships and music…both raw and still incomplete. Both characters are well developed yet viewers never learn their names.

Made on a budget of only $160,000 and filmed in 17 days, this movie earned $20M at the box office.  Its soundtrack won a Grammy nom and the song “Falling Slowly” took home the Oscar for Best Original Song.

Once‘ is one of my Top 10 movies of 2007.  Available on DVD for purchase or to rent exclusively at Amazon on Blu-ray.

Grade: A

Once‘ is rated R and Running Time is 1 hour and 26 minutes.
