The Irish musical movie Once, which received the 2008 Academy Award for Best Original Song, will be presented to local audiences at 7pm on June 26 and 27 at the Cinematheque, 22A Hai Ba Trung Street.
The film tells the story of an Irishman who plays the guitar on a popular shopping street in Dublin, and a young Czech flower-seller. They start talking and discover their mutual interest in music. Together, they sing and play music and the story follows them as they record a demo CD together. This is also a tale of unrequited romance.
Made in Ireland with a shoestring budget, the film features scenes of Dublin city and beautiful music.
