Storyline

Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star (Penn), now bored and jaded in his retirement embarks on a quest to find his father's persecutor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S. Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late.

So begins a life-altering journey across the heartland of America to track down and confront his father's nemesis. As his quest unfolds, Cheyenne is reawakened by the people he encounters and his journey is transformed into one of reconciliation and self discovery. As his date with destiny arrives and he tracks down Lange, Cheyenne must finally decide if it is redemption he seeks ....or revenge. Starring two time Academy Award winner ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The organ-like instrument that David Byrne plays for Cheyenne is a variation of Byrne's "house organ." Byrne created the organ in 2008 as part of an art installation project in New York City. Instead of playing musical notes, each key on the organ transmits a signal through a wire, which in turn "plays" the building: for example, motors vibrating a set of metal girders, hoses blowing air through the building's water pipes, or metal rods striking the radiator.

Quotes

Mordecai Midler: You really take after your father. You both are rather pedantic.
Cheyenne: My instinct tells me that pedantry is an essential characteristic for capturing Nazis.

fascinating and clever
22 June 2012 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I really adore this film. I think I saw it 5 times in various cinemas. It is a film about many things, like growing up, leaving the past behind, how parents can scar their children for life and of course about the Holocaust. It is also a sort of a road movie. The topic of the Holocaust is presented in a smart, sophisticated and almost delicate way like I have never seen before. Despite that or maybe because if the delicate approach it is no less effective in recalling the Holocaust than let's say "The Schindler's list". But very different, of course. The film is very well directed and I like the soundtrack as well. The film has a strange, hypnotic flow and rhythm to it, despite being slow in some parts. It can be funny too. The acting is excellent, especially by Penn but not only. Highly recommended.
