Excellent
21 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie shows what can be done with what is likely a bare-bones budget.

Humorous, intelligent, metaphorical, this movie addresses, as all movies should, aspects of the human condition. The movie itself is well done and clearly done with very meager resources, but it touches on important parts of what makes humankind human, in particular humankind's ability to make music. Good sound track that may feature the actors themselves - I have not checked.

Instead of the unbelievable sums of money spent on what is utter dross, a characteristic of all major movie studios/distributors in the USA, those same studios might fund or partially fund, in addition to distributing, gems such as this movie that are quirky, yet very well- done. This movie is not only entertaining, but it remarkably provokes, as all good art should, thinking in the viewer's mind about what it means to be a human being on the planet that humans call Earth.
