Soul-stirring Comedy
18 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If Don Quixote lived in the 21st century, he surely would have been committed to a mental institution--probably one similar to the opening scenes in this unvarnished and openly human film. Let's hope that the Man of La Mancha would have escaped and had the splendid adventures told in Mr. Dungbeetle. How sanity is measured or identified remains a multi-generational cultural enigma, one that is adeptly explored in this film but never explained.

The powerful absurdities revealed in the terse and memorable dialog anchor a remarkable story of self-discovery that never becomes reckless or cloying. You never feel you are being force-fed an agenda; rather you find yourself on the quixotic adventures as a co-traveler. Expect both laughter and tears as the story takes its expertly crafted verbal turns.

One of the most charming and quotable indie films I've ever seen.
