Steven and Katrien spent the day outside and when they came home we had leftover lasagna from yesterday and then we watched the movie Once.
Once is a Beautiful Movie about the beginning of the band The Swell Season that I wrote about a few weeks back. It is about the story of how Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova met and fell in love and realized that they were falling in love through the music they started producing together.
It is a completely lovely story and when it suddenly ended we were all just… wtf? Where is the rest? We want more..
Its just a beautiful love story with absolutely beautiful music.
Once is a low budget independant movie from Ireland and it has won an Independent Spirit Award, an Academy Award for Best Original Song and it won prices at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and the Dublin Film Festival. Tthe soundtrack won the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Music.
A lovely movie worth seeing – at least twice!
