After several strong recommendations, I watched John Carney's Sundance hit "Once." The music was great (it deserved the Oscar that it got), and it was probably one of the most realistic movies I have seen. This is always something I thought a movie should strive for, but after watching "Once", I realized the reason that I love movies is simply because they aren't realistic. 

Thoughts? Has anyone else seen "Once?"

Satisfying movie.

Well said. I saw the movie when it came out, when I wasn't at the age to appreciate the innuendos of their relationship. I was bored. Just saw the musical and can't believe it won a Tony last year. Difficult for people to fill hours of acting with a slow plot like that. Still love the music.
