Everything good you’ve heard about Once is absolutely true and entirely incomplete. There are so few words to describe the beauty and the nuances of this film. It’s something you really just have to experience. It is, at once, rich and moving and haunting and witty and deeply resonant, not to mention exquisitely presented. I will never have enough words and simply urge you to make time one evening and give yourself over to the experience. I doubt it will be for everyone, but it is exactly my kind of entertainment — that which will always hold a place in my heart, filling my spirit with the satisfying ache of passion that accompanies the deepest forms of love.
