It is the best documentary I've seen about exile, in a beautiful way expressed through musicians from all over the world who fled wars, revolutions and poverty and found the Paris Underground and streets to keep on playing their music (what keeps them alive).

Um bom documentário sobre as pessoas que encontramos no metro a fazer música em Paris. Quem são? Donde vieram? Porque fazem música no metro? Quais os seus sonhos? Todos eles partiram em busca de algo melhor. Todos eles levaram consigo a sua música, que os liga às suas origens e lhes dá identidade. Vêm da Roménia para ganhar o sustento dos próximos meses, desertaram do exército sérvio, foram presos políticos na Argentina.....

No reviews for this prompt me to put down some thoughts here. I saw the film at MoMA on Feb.8, 2010.

This film was very enjoyable, I was very impressed with the fact that being a nyc resident wishing to visit Paris - was that life seems the same here & there. The length time over 2 hours was a too long (esp. when one has to spend time with an act that you don't think that much of) & a bit rambling with i'd say 70% of the musicians featured not equated with subway performances (at least not that we saw them in film footage down under.)

So it starts & finishes as a film about musicians playing in the Paris METRO...& it became an exploration of emigration & 90's international political history.
