Did You Know?

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, our hero is just a kid, hanging out in town playing with two other kids; the date is approx. early 1960's. Out of nowhere, an airplane appears and lands on the airstrip just outside of town. Everybody jumps onto their various vehicles to go see the excitement. In one brief shot of these vehicles driving away from the main hotel, we can see a satellite dish on top of the hotel. This technology was not available at that time. See more »

Miles Davis got me first , and Colin Friels role locked me in
28 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I won't fight with Phil Kafcaloudes synopsis of the movie, its spot on, I just wanted to add my comment on the final jazz scene in Paris.

Every time i have described that scene to friends and all, I cry. Tears of joy mind you,

Reason? Its because of the look on Colin Friels' face,

a kid in candyland for the first time, maybe, you can see he is in seventh heaven , the only dream he ever had is coming true in front of us the movie audience and in front of the live audience in the Paris club,

The moment just takes you to a special place of powerful emotions of Happiness.

what can i say? i cry at movies , so sue me!! grin

p.s. this is ridiculous even writing a comment has made me cry!!
