The Jazzman
13 November 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

The English transliteration is misleading. The name is actually pronounced "Moo-ee Ee-z dschaz" kind of meaning We are Jazz. The music is more ragtime than jazz, but this is a great hero-esque story, especially if you can deal with white subtitles on light colored backgrounds.
