Album Remarks & Appraisals:
ONCE is a modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin. Featuring Glen Hansard, lead singer of the Irish band "The Frames," the film tells the story of a street musician and a Czech immigrant during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story. Contains 13 original songs written and performed by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, all of which are performed in the film.
Record Collector (magazine) (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The film starred] talented non-actors....Both perform well on the soundtrack, which is a series of their pining or triumphant love songs."
Composers: Glen Hansard; Markéta Irglová.
