Schultze Gets the Blues
Added to my films
The fat bellied miner Schultze and his mates are laid off. All that's left: beer, fishing and the accordion. That changes when Schultze hears a zydeco melody on the radio. Dry, warm-hearted tragi-comedy from Saksen-Anhalt. Schultze gets the blues tells the story of Schultze. Schultze has spent his whole life in a small town in Saxon-Anhalt near the river Saale. Schultze's life, divided between work and the pub, the allotment, folk music and fishing, is rudely interrupted when he and his mates Manfred and Jurgen are made redundant. As entropy sets in and maintaining the daily routine deteriorates into a farce, Schultze discovers a life on the other side of the hill.
