Once!

I was lucky enough to see an advance screening of that movie in Toronto. Afterwards there was a Q&A session with the director and Glen Hansard (singer of The Frames and main actor in this movie). It also included a small performance of Glen, solo on the movie theatre stage.

Anyway, regarding the movie, it's a great musical. Not in the traditional sense (with all those song-and-dance scenes), but as a moving (love) story with even more moving songs. No fancy settings, elaborate sets or stylised performances, just two great actors and the streets of Dublin.

Very recommended!

This movie (and Glen's performance after the screening) made me a Frames fan.



Here are some pictures of Glen's performance. And yes, that's the same guitar as he plays in the movie.

I'm totally green with envy - that must have been an amazing experience. What songs did Glen sing?

Glen and Marketa's vocies just blend together so beautifully - i get goosebumps listening to their songs. It reminds me of the magic between Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan.

If you love the music on this film - check out The Swell Season cd too - it features four tracks from the movie.

Unfortunately, I didn't know many of his songs when I attended the screening. He did play Falling Slowly (my fave! ) with some girls from the audience doing the backup vocals. He also recognised a local singer/songwriter in the audience and invited him up on stage to sing one of his songs. That one was excellent too.
In any case, yeah, I was very lucky.

Typical that you mention Damien Rice, as apparently he and Glen are friends. I think Damien even makes a cameo in the movie (or was it maybe his mother? I forgot, in any case it's during the house party scene).

I got that one, it's also amazing. Bought it when they (The Frames) performed in my town a couple of months ago. I'm still looking for the official soundtrack of the movie though. I know it exists, I just haven't seen it in the music shops here.

I saw it at a Borders in Costa Mesa. A long way from you, but proof that it does exist.

That's the middle of the night!
Some people have just gone to bed at that time.
