Gian Maria Volonté,
This is a wonderful film in my light as it shows the true roaring 20's in full glory. It clearly depicts Beiderbeckes life and experiences, the viewer get's into the film. For some it may be hard to watch, as the entire film is a flashback from one of Bix's friends, and the flashbacks don't take a chronological order. If you miss the date and time, that are presented on the bottom of the screen from time to time, you can get lost easily. This movie hit home with me as Beiderbeckes music is not recognized by many, and probably never will be. Go rent this movie. In the words of Louis Armstrong, "Ain't none of them play like him yet."
