Soundtrack – Once

30 11 2010

Listened: Monday November 8

Once is a very sweet movie, without being saccharine or cliche, and the best part is that the music is great too. Despite being a film full of non-actors, it’s a very well acted film.

Before I saw the film I was only vaguely familiar with The Frames (Glen Hansard’s band) so I didn’t know what I was in for. His songs, Marketa’s songs, and the songs they do together are all beautiful and complex, but simple at the same time. I’ve seen them perform live a couple of times now and they are masters of their live show as well – it’s like you’re in someone’s living room.

When they won the Oscar for Best Song, I couldn’t have been happier for them. It was completely deserved.
