Tolmen Movies present: Once

A modern day musical about Dublin, a busker and a Czech flower seller. The girl helps the guy to put together a demo disc, while they slowly work through past loves and their feelings for each other. This gentle film, which won the audience award at the Sundance Festival, has a wonderful soundtrack from actors who perform music together in real life.
