Wonderful documentary about extraordinary musicians
19 February 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Yesterday I had the chance to watch "Heimatklaenge" at the Berlin Film Festival. I was expecting that a documentary about folk music and Yodeling in Switzerland would be rather boring, but what I saw was simply amazing: The movie is a portrait of three musicians who take the traditional swiss folk style and combine it with experimental music. This sometimes sounds like Zappa, at times like Zen-Meditation or sometimes reminds of Klezmer music. We here some of the tunes in full length and I really enjoyed listening to all of them.

The documentary doesn't present a narrator, who tells us what to think about the artists or their music. The portrayed persons speak for themselves (in Switzerduetsch) and their stories and their story telling is so compelling that you forget that it actually is a documentary.

This definitely is one of the best music films I've ever seen.
