Yes Nurse! No Nurse!

My favorite genre brought back to life again...


Yes Nurse! No Nurse!

"Move over Fred and Ginger, there's a new game in town. 'Yes Nurse! No Nurse!', the new film by Dutch director Pieter Kramer, is a glorious, imaginative homage to the golden era of the late, great Hollywood studio musical -- and a celebration of all its camped up, Technicolor glory.

Saturated with eye-popping candy-coated colors, 'Yes Nurse', paints an on-screen 1960s world where the streets are filled with singing and dancing, carnivals always come to town and the biggest problem in everyone's' lives is that mean, old, nasty neighbor."

Absolutely charming film!!

A must see for anyone who likes musicals, Indian film (YES - they spontaneously break into song numerous times - AND lots of people dance - Not quite hundreds of people, but still lots), bright colors, the Sixties, or the movie _Singing in the Rain_.
