As his quest unfolds, Cheyenne is reawakened by the people he encounters and his journey is transformed into one of reconciliation and self discovery.

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: Hey Cheyenne, can you give me a hand? This door - Goddammit, I think it's jammed.
Cheyenne: Are you kidding?
Mordecai Midler: No, no. The fucking thing won't open. Alright, do me a favor. Call the guy at the reception desk. He's got a master key.
Cheyenne: No fucking way. A detective like you who's flushed out thousands of Nazi criminals, and you can't manage to get yourself out of the john?

2011 Best!
25 October 2011 | by (Lake Orta, Italy) – See all my reviews

I can't lie, i was expecting a "normal" movie by an Italian director, like Muccino's movies- not great, a little weak here and there and kinda boring-! "This Must Be the Place" instead is a great flick, probably the best movie of 2011, great story, amazing acting, a photography that leave you speechless. It's a must see. Plus it make you smile, it's ironic, Sean Penn has fun with his character, he plays with it, his moves and his voice are always perfect, it good to see an actor in such a great shape. This is one of those pictures that remind you why going to the movie is such an amazing thing to do!

Ciao ciao, Alberto
