Gotta see the polka dude discover zydeco

Promo still from \'Schultze gets the blues\'
This week Ebert choose “Schultze gets the blues” as his video pick of the week. I’d never heard of the film before, but now I’ve just got to see it. A German polka accordionist who discovers a love for zydeco late in life through a chance snippet on the radio? And travels from Germany to the bayou to check it out?!?

This is so cool it makes me all incoherently happy. It comes out Tuesday on DVD and I’m already arranging to get a copy to watch with my FYS students.

Rock, rock on!
