Schultze Gets the Blues Reviews

Page 1 of 4
Russ Breimeier
Christianity Today

A film with two opposite interpretations to its title -- figuratively sad, literally joyful.

| Original Score: 3/4

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice

A delightful oddball German comedy about a retired mine worker's musical quest.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Like the films of Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismäki, Schultze Gets the Blues uses dry humor to extract laughs out of mundane situations.

Reno Gazette-Journal

Writer-director Michael Schorr's story moves with remarkable sloth.

It's a bit of a surprise when the film ends and you realize that you've been touched in unanticipated ways by Schultze's solitary quest.

...some predictable tearjerking that is only half-successful.

He does, but you probably won't, especially from watching this movie.

Arizona Daily Star

Krause, a natural physical comic, lights up with endearingly childish glee as he joyously samples his new life.

An uncommonly good-natured and simple film, bearing no malice, holding no agenda, desiring no undue attention.

San Antonio Express-News

When his friends send him off to America to his town's sister city of New Braunfels for Wurstfest, Schultze begins to spiral out of control.

Those who are patient enough to stick it out will be charmed.

Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle

The film's sparseness has an off-putting effect on the viewer. Schultze, the character, remains more an idea or concept than a fleshed-out human being.

Like a lazy summer day in the Big Easy, the movie sneaks up on you.

Salt Lake Tribune

Though it sometimes seems nothing much is happening in Schultze Gets the Blues, watching it happen to the deadpan Schultze is surprisingly enjoyable.

| Original Score: 3/4

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The geriatric, Teutonic equivalent of a Jim Jarmusch film.

| Original Score: 3/4

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

A delightful hodgepodge of bland and spicy fixin's and genuine pleasures and surprises that will definitely satisfy the cinematic palates of discriminating audiences.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

In his debut film, German writer-director Michael Schorr has crafted a deadpan and droll, yet lyrical, whale-out-of-water tale about defying peer pressure and self-limitations.

| Original Score: 3/4

March 24, 2005
Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

Schultze's quiet determination in his musical quest gives the film an unexpected emotional punch.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

There's a pleasant delight in the comically dour faces of these old Eastern bloc men, an appreciation of sleepy small-town life in a quaint village.

Schorr's award-winning film may be a bit on the slight side to some tastes, but it's a journey well worth taking.
