Troy, a young man grieving from the loss of his young wife, is asked by his Aunt Hilda to build her a porch. He goes to her house in a desert community, interacts with the colorful locals, and tries to reconcile with himself.
"Americana" is one laid back film. David Carradine wanders into a small Kansas town, evoking curiosity among the locals, as to why his obsession with repairing an old carousel. That's it, and if that sounds like not much of a plot, you are correct. With non actors playing the folksy inhabitants, Barbara Hershey in a rather meaningless role, and Carradine sleepwalking, the movie totally lacks momentum. One curious aspect is a nice assortment of dogs that appear throughout. You can try and imagine meaning in every scene, but my take is that this is simply a very understated film, that demands extreme patience to finish. Not really boring, but far from exciting. - MERK
