The soundtrack reminds one of one's own amateur attempts at 'shooting a home movie' on one's family camera. BIG DEAL. The film is SO GOOD that this 'drawback' becomes a PLUS! We are taken into the heart of our Western wasteland. We are shown what simple sentiments, under duress, under discrimination, under a culture where poetry and playfulness are nearly redundant, can mean. We MEET people we would not usually, have the courage or desire to approach... in THEIR surroundings. But this is not the usual ARTY VOYEURISM that even the best films in the 'social' genre usually put out... This is curiosity, respect and compassion. This film is TENDER. This film is a healing but sad, but beautiful experience. I saw it in Buenos Aires, Argentina where it has been running in a central cinema for...six months! In Italy NO ONE has seen it. This information says it all.
