Suggested Valentine's Day weekend viewing
ONCE is a terrific movie about the nature of love, friendship, and (most of all) music. Shot on a shoestring budget in Ireland utilizing a cast of (mostly) non-actors, this movie has a freshness and verve that you won't find in any ten slick Hollywood productions. It's just wonderful. And it's a lot less corny then these clips may lead you to believe. Watch it with your loved ones this weekend if you can.
(But you may want to run the subtitles on the bottom of the screen if you want to understand every single word that comes out of the speakers. There are some heavy accents involved.)
The "embedding" feature has been disabled on the clips listed below, but you can cut and paste them if you want to sample some scenes and music from the movie.
