In a rural Venice dedicated to playing music, a fit of laughter can dig up trenches and an acoustic failure can lead to a genuine community war. Amidst cows being taken on romantic fluvial trips, opinionated ducks and amusing ganster boat races, the brass praphernalia of an orchestra is declared the most treasured booty and preyed on accordingly. The film rolls smoothly through reedy interiors and knee-high channels.

Rural comedy with splendid photography.
