More of a dedication than documentary
8 November 2020 | by professorjeffreypbrownSee all my reviews

The highlight is to see Diva and Dweezil with Massimo in Frank's hometown looking at the tiny home that his parent's came from. And to see Diva shed a tea when being honored by the towns people. Just a wonderful look at a moment in Zappa's life, allways about the music, but here it's about Zappa the man, the family, the genius and beyond. Marvelous
