Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova is one of my favourite songs – from the movie “Once” (2000) If you haven’t watched this movie I highly recommend it.
Here is some info about it from Wikipedia:
Once is a 2007 Irish musical film written and directed by John Carney. Set in Dublin, Ireland, the naturalistic drama stars musicians Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. Collaborators prior to making the film performing under the stage moniker The Swell Season, Hansard and Irglová composed and performed all of the original songs in the film.
Shot for only €130,000 (US$160,000), the film was successful, earning substantial per-screen box office averages in the United States. It received enthusiastic reviews and awards such as the 2007 Independent Spirit Award for Best Foreign Film. Hansard and Irglová’s song “Falling Slowly” won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the soundtrack as a whole also received a Grammy Award nomination.
