Very catching movie about a real legend
11 July 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is the best busker movie I've ever seen, and I very much doubt it can get much better. There have been made quite a few documentaries about buskers, but most of them are mainly academical, analyzing from an elevated vantage point.

Vardi goes Europe on street level. That's the only way to catch the spirit of the buskers. You have to be one of them to understand their way of living. Vardi does. In order to fulfill his quest, finding the true king of the buskers, he turns into a busker himself. The quest is not at all easy - how do yo track down a free bird?

Well, he succeeded, congratulations
