An early jewel
2 January 2020 | by elbermuSee all my reviews

An advanced film of its time. Minimalist, austere black and white. Excellent musical band that gives a touch of irony and comedy to history. A cinematic jewel of great value. The story is simple, it is true, but not because of that bad or boring, due to the fantastic interpretations. A rarity that may well be a cult film.
