Schultze gets the blues is the story of a folk musician from Germany who ends up falling in love with the Blues.
Having just lost his job he decides to stop playing his local music in favour of learning the blues and traveling to America. The movie is a quirky, fun-loving and melancholic adventure of an elderly man discovering a love for a music genre very foreign to himself.
This screening is a part of our Kriterion Zomeravond (Kriterion Summer Evening) European Blues. The other screening for this evening is Mi Nismo Andjeli (1992).
