Great movie. Wish they didn't drop the f-bomb every other word. But the music is really enjoyable.
Remember putting a band together in the early 90's, we probably spent as much time watching this or "The Blues Brothers" with a few beers than we did rehearsing. We also went to see The Blues Band, Nine Below Zero, and Buddy Guy for inspiration.
Well don’t watch a movie set in Ireland during a recession then ya *** *****
View the f-bombs as percussion and enjoy the rhythmic flow.
I recommend ‘The Thick Of It’, ‘Veep’, ‘The Canterbury Tales’ or Shakespeare to get into the flow.
BTW - the guitar player has won anOscar, a Grammy and had a few number ones since then. Check out the band The Frames.
I really enjoyed the film when I saw it (when released initially) and I need to get a copy as I'd love to see it again.
Great music and vioces. Also shoes how people get on together.
They are literally going to be here in about two weeks at a popular gig place and I will be there. Andrew Strong has got such a great voice. Chicks are great on Mustang Sally and he is so good on Try a Little Tenderness. He growls it so good. Cannot wait.
I love this movie. "I'm black and I'm proud" is a classic scene.
The music is great.
it was kinda like watching South Park for the first time
what happened to these singers? Hansard went on to that Once thing with Carney and the eastern European gal, but the others?
Yeah loved this movie and the music. Thanks for reminding me!
I like it. My wife and I watched it again last year. It captures the mystery of music making and how music speaks across genres and cultures. It's very funny. the whole bit with Joey--is he telling the truth or just a lunatic?--is great.
My only criticism of it is it's a brit director reproducing cliches about the irish: they're wild and unruly, they love to fight, etc etc. As an irish-american I find the ending rankles a bit.
The novel is very good and handles the breakup without brawling irish cliches. Part of Roddy Doyle's Barrytown trilogy
It's an annual viewing in our household...
There is a lot of "reality" going on in that movie... I'm not sure I have ever seen a more realistic movie about forming a band. Exaggerated at times? Perhaps... but when I think about it, not by much.
Liked the movie, loved the music, might need to pull out the soundtrack tonight.
Great film, especially the swearing. The Irish are the World champions at profanity.
If I have one criticism though it's the fact that it is responsible for the surge in cover bands playing Mustang Sally throughout the British Isles.
I liked the film a lot and I have the soundtrack.
Detail: I love the snare drum sound on the recordings!
Top movie. Ain't seen it in ages, now inspired to do so!
that's how we bleedin' talk in dublin.
Take out the excessive profanity and the Irish accents, and I've lived that movie.
Andrew Strong about to tour down under.. I'm not going but our singer and bass player are
One of my all time favorites.
