Movie Review by Movie Addict
July 1st, 2007

Finding your spirit in the face of opposition.

This is director Michael Schorr's first film, and, from the honors it has been given, we can expect to see more greatness from him in the future.

Some compare this film to About Schmidt, and say that this is what it should have been. I leave that to the viewer to decide, but I was enchanted by this brilliant character study starring Horst Krause, a long time German actor, who is enchanting as Schultze.

All of us face death. Sometimes we think about it constantly; especially when you have an illness due to your work, or are facing depression. Schultze knows that it is coming and his life is routine and boring even if he has his music.

To change at this time of life is an impressive feat. Schultze finds life in Zydeco. I can relate to that as you cannot possible ignore the stirring in you very being when you hear that music. It, and the sexy Ellen Barkin, are the reasons The Big Easy is a favorite film of mine.

Fortunately, Shultze gets the opportunity to savor some of the life in the land of Zydeco before he dies. Only speaking German, he is welcomed and accepted here as he was rejected by those in Germany who could not accept change.

It is a beautiful story about the end of life, searching for your dreams, and stretching beyond the comfortable.
