Aro Recommended Once


Ireland 2006, 85 minutes
Dir. John Carney
In English, Czech
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Music / Romance, Independent


Aroview: A gorgeous, understated paean to the transformative power of music, this unique, Irish independent follows the burgeoning relationship between a local busker boy and a Czech girl on the streets of musical capital, Dublin.

Generous to a fault toward the artistic process and the music performance itself, the mournful balladry of real life muso Glen Hansard forms the cornerstone of the drama, which depicts in intimate, unhurried, and almost documentary-like naturalism, the mutual nursing of two broken-hearts. Something of a must-see for music lovers.
