Probably would never have been released on DVD if Adrian Brody hadn’t won the Oscar for The Pianist. It tries to be a sweet little study of some oddballs, but doesn’t really work. The best thing about the movie is Milla Jovovich, who is the lead singer of an in-your-face punk rock band so desperate for gigs that she agrees to play at a Jewish wedding where they want klezmer music, which she has never even heard of … and she studies hard and actually manages to pull it off, sort of punk klezmer. It’s almost worth it just for those scenes.
