Conventional documentary, 30 March 2009
Author: marcos aruguete ( from Buenos Aires, Argentina

I saw this documentary yesterday on the BAFICI (Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival) with the presence of Mann.

He told us that Jim Jarmusch (who is keen on mushrooms) suggested him to do this movie, which he did with a very reduced budget. My opinion is that he was not very interested on making the movie, he become interested while he was doing it, thats why I think he does not have a clear point of view about the subject, he is just a witness.

It contains testimonies from mushroom experts, scenes from the mushroom festival in Colorado, extracts from old educational films and old cartoons which make references to mushrooms (just like on his previous work "Grass"). He covers different mushroom purposes (for cooking, for tripping, for medicine, for environmental benefits) without dragging very deep into each one, it just give you a general and superficial outlook.
