O Brother, Where Art Thou

  • Never can find a Siren when I need one...

Loosely based on Homer's ''The Odyssey'', this is a very updated version of the adventures of Ulysses. Our hero and his two sidekicks escape from a chain gang and head for home, during the depression years in America. Arriving near home, he discovers that his wife is about to remarry, which causes him no end of grief. So he immediately sets about trying to win her back. Along the way the trio has all sorts of adventures with the weird and wacky people they meet, and even record a song to make some money. The film features some great hillbilly and bluegrass music.

Ian Douglas: The music makes this movie. Otherwise, it is just another road movie with amusing episodes. There is a huge hole in the plot which is glossed over. Some good laughs.

Kirsten Gouws (16): Different from the average movie, Entertaining though.
