Schultze gets the Blues

Next was the quiet "Schultz gets the blues" German movie by director Michael Schorr. If you don't have extreme patience then you might pass this one up. It's a sweet movie but very, very slow paced. I kept expecting something to happen or for there to be a climax of some kind but it never happens. Schultze lives in a small town in Germany and has just retired from the mine. In his spare time he plays his accordian. One night on the radio he hears a upbeat blues diddy and he is hooked. After winning a trip to Texas he takes a little journey to experience the Louisiana swamps. Like I said before it is a slow turn and almost no dialog. A sweet little film but only for the hardcore art house crowd.
