It's clear from the opening shots of slowly tilting windmills that
Schultze is going to take its time...and yours, too. After a solitary
middle-aged miner (Krause) living in a small German town comes across a Cajun
radio station, he instantly becomes hooked on the down-home melodies. Will the
solitary Schultze travel to Louisiana to pursue his new passion? Is there ever
any doubt? The movie is cute enough, but its moral—to "Live! Live! Live!" —is as
cliché as a German in lederhosen.
