Once Is the Loveliest Number

love the title, but please explain.

Why is the lovely film Once called Once?

Is it because the film chronicles a relationship that, for once, does not get consummated? Is it because all stories begin “once upon a time”? Is it because the film is about how the stars align sometimes in ways that amaze? Or is it, ultimately, because the more you write and say and think about the word once, the more its strangeness starts to multiply?
