SMOKE from page 9
eye-catching transitions between
Victor and Thomas as children
and adults.
The flashbacks give the view
er the full story slowly, bit by bit,
until the picture becomes clear
and die story reaches its emotion
al peak.
Along die way, the story of die
two boys is Slowly uncovered,
including the true origin of the
fire, which destroyed Victor’s
home and killed Thomas’ parents,
who were visiting.
The serious underlying mes
sage, one of father-and-son rela
tionships matched with the unique
traditions of the Indian culture, is
nicely countered by moments of
comic relief, usually when
Thomas launches into one of his
many and usually humorous sto
rytelling tirades.
The film stands to counter
some of die long-standing stereo
types that surround the American
Indian culture, but at the same
time reinforces others, most of
them negative.
The scenes of drunken galli
vanting, the father who leaves his
young son, the shabby, trailer
filled reservation and he idealistic,
ideas that Victor has about his own
culture are eye-opening insights
on the realistic side to the often
rumored stereotypes.
At the same time, the traits that
the culture is best known for, such
as the fabled storytelling and the
culinary genius of the Indian
women, are an integral part of the
film and are presented in all their
unique greatness.
The racism that daunts the two
main characters once they leave
the reservation is bluntly por
trayed, seems alarmingly accurate
and should be an eye-opener for
audiences of every culture.
“Smoke Signals” mixes com
edy and poignant storytelling to
make a movie that is definitely
worth the six bucks. And you’ll
still want to buy the book, too.
V “Smoke Signals” plays this
weekend and next weekend at the
Mary Riepma Ross Film Theater,
located in the Sheldon Art
For show times, call the Ross
Theater at (402) 472-5353.
Victor Borge brings laughs,
music to the Lied Center
The Great Dane is here to perform his
world-renowned satirical tricks thk have enter
tained audiences across two continents for
more than half a century.
Victor Borge, die legendary musician and
comedian from Denmark, will present his con
cert of classical music and comedy this week
end at the Lied Center for Performing Arts, 301
N. 12th St
Borge, who celebrates his 90th birthday
this year, has performed his concerts for more
than 70 years. Combining classical piano with
current events, Borge presents a humorous,
light-hearted shtick that never relies on pro
fane language or subject matter for laughs.
Borge began his career m Denmark in the
1920s as a concert pianist. Over the next 20
years, he became one of Europe’s top cabaret
performers. He was so wed-known for his bit
ing remarks against the Nazis that Hitler made
him No. 1 on die Nazi blacklist In 1940, Borge
fled to the United States when the Germans
invaded his homeland.
Since coming to America, Borge has per
formed on Broadway, television, film and
radio. His albums and videos have sold mil
lions of copies, and he has written two books.
Borge will perform Sunday night at 7 pm.
Tickets for the show are $39, $35 and $29.
Tickets are half price for students. For more
