I'm trying to track down a film and was wondering if anyone on here might know what it's called. The guy who reviews films on 6music was talking about it a few weeks ago and it sounded right up my street, but I didn't write down the name at the time, and now I can't remember. It's a documentary about a bunch of disabled African street musicians who form a band and make it big (I think). That's about all I can recall, other than it might have been shot by either French or Belgian directors. Any ideas?

I did chuckle when I saw the "plate of shrimps" poster on a shop door and there were some decent quotes but on the whole I was perplexed. I kind of stopped paying attention towards the end because I couldn't comprehend much so the final scene just pushed me over the edge.

I fear I am ordinary.

The new Muppets movie is absolutely amazing and the Toy Story short that was on before it was worth the admission alone.

I loved last year's Source Code, a really clever sci-fi/time-travel film in a similar vein to Inception, Lost etc and a good performance from Jake Gyllenhall (or however you spell his name).

I also finally got round to watching Snatch recently. I wasn't a big fan of Lock, Stock so was never too keen on seeing Snatch but I'm glad I did. One of the best British films I've seen and Brad Pitt's role as a gypsy is genius.
