Storyline

With one coin to make a wish at the piazza fountain, One Man Band tells the humorously captivating tale of a peasant girl who encounters two competing street performers who'd prefer the coin find its way into their tip jars. As the two one-man bands' rivalry crescendos, the two overly eager musicians vie to win the little girl's attention. Written by Andrew Jimenez

if you like one man bands this is for you
12 January 2007 | by (reading england) – See all my reviews

WELL Personally I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT BECAUSE ONE MAN BANDS ARE MY LIFE. AND SO IS DAN THE ONE MAN BAND. but anyway. its such a amazing film because its all about a big beefy man with his own band and he just trots around all day with his little musical instrument. one day i want to be just like him and become famous and have a film made about me doing this. it is such a in depth film on the thoughts and feelings of people like me and how they feel about playing on there own with their accordian and oboes etc. it really hits the nail on the head and i personally devour this film as it is exactly the kind of film i like watching.
