An unnamed guy is a Dublin guitarist/singer/songwriter who makes a living by fixing vacuum cleaners in his Dad's Hoover repair shop by day, and singing and playing for money on the Dublin streets by night. An unnamed girl is a Czech who plays piano when she gets a chance, and does odd jobs by day and takes care of her Mom and her daughter by night. Guy meets girl and they get to know each other as the girl helps the guy put together a demo disc that he can take to London in hope of landing a music contract. During the same several day period, the guy and the girl work through their past loves, and reveal their budding love for one another, through their songs. Written by
The song "Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy" was improvised whilst filming on a bus and elicited much laughter from the fellow passengers. See more »
Walking through the trees (prior to the coastal shots) Girl reveals she is married. Guy asks, "Since when?" She replies,"Two years ago when I became pregnant with Ivanka." This would mean Ivanka would still be a baby (as she is credited) whereas she is clearly a year or so older. See more »
"A Magical Film of love, music, song...and a Hoover Vacuum!"
ONCE is a film to see and cherish for the magic of song and music
combined in the setting of Dublin for a young man and woman who meet
and who make wonderful music together. The only issue is she's married
to a bloke in another country. But that doesn't stop them for creating
a wonderful piece of music which will stay with them forever.
John Carney has directed and written a brilliant film which tags at
your heart and makes your feet dance all at the same time. "Guy and
Girl" are tremendous in their parts and the humor and passion they
bring to their music. Dublin is such a great location for this film and
it resembles London in so many of its blocks of buildings. The bond is
also wonderful to see between father and son and the encouragement
which the father gives his son.
ONCE gives you a time in your life when you meet your soul mate who
brings the music to your heart you have always dreamed of...as well as
a Hoover vacuum-"who knew?" See ONCE, because "once" you do, you may
come back for more.
