Schultze Gets the Blues

I just saw the preview for a new foreign film called Schultze Gets the Blues, and it looks great. It’s about a German salt mine worker who is out of work when the mine closes. With nothing better to do, he just sits around the house practicing his accordion. One day he hears some Zydeco music on the radio and is hooked. He ends up moving to Louisiana to learn to play Zydeco and, I would guess, lives happily ever after. IMDB has a rating of 7.4 stars out of 10, and Rotten Tomatoes has an 80% freshness rating. I can’t wait to see it. It opens in America on February 18.
