avoid this film!
13 August 2001 | by alannwSee all my reviews

This was one of the very few occasions when I've paid to see a film but felt I'd get more for my money by leaving early and going for a beer instead. It seems to be vaguely inspired (if that's the right word) by Buena Vista Social Club, except that none of the characters actually seem to have anything interesting to say and (a matter of taste, admittedly) the music isn't nearly as good. It also seems to be deliberately badly shot and to be completely devoid of editing, presumably to give a "this is real" feel to the whole thing. All it achieved for me was the sense that I was a fool for having paid to watch this boring, self-indulgent trash (the fact that the film was about Kusturica's own band should perhaps have been a warning...) Save yourself the anguish and miss this film, unless you're madly keen on the music. Kusturica's just trading on his name, and helping to ruin it in the process.
