Sweet!
26 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just stumbled upon this gem on cable and have given up my afternoon to it (I kept trying to pull myself away, but with no luck!).

Hawaii, Japan, Canada ...

What a pleasant surprise to discover so much about an instrument that I (apparently along with many others) have long considered little more than a toy.

Yes, Tiny Tim does make an appearance, but so do a lot of truly creative folks, young and old. And what they seem to share - and express - is unalloyed joy.

Between the fascinating history, the wonderful musicians, the inspiring teachers (esp. Langley B.C.'s Mr. Luongo) and the students, I defy anyone not to have a smile on their face throughout this delightful - and life-affirming - documentary. A sure cure for the blues.

And, boy, do I wish I was exposed to the ukulele in school, instead of the piano and that painful recorder!
