Micah gave me this recommendation. I watched about half the short online then realized that it screened before the movie so saved the rest for the big screen. The short is really great. Basically, these 6 people break into an apartment and turn common household items into musical instruments. They have a song for each room and that's all the short is. It's awesome. So this movie is from the same dudes but this time instead of music for an apartment it's music for a city. And there's a story with a cop who hates music because his douche conductor brother gets all the acclaim within his family.
The story of the movie is pretty good but it's really the music numbers that make this movie special. There are four main movements within the film and one introductory piece involving a van hitting the shoulders of the road at different speeds to make different tones while a guy with a full drum set in the back of the bus keeps the beat. It's so awesome I can't even say. Instead I'll post the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qct3nBWlNTA
So if this movie had two or three more music sequences it might be my fav of the fest, but as such I think it's firmly entrenched as my number two. A really great expression of how universal and primal music is to us as a species. I recommend it to anyone who likes music.
