Variety gives MUSICA CAMPESINA a big thumbs up!

Review by Robert Koehler
As easygoing and rambling as its wandering hero, Alberto Fuguet's "Country Music" is a likable tale of a Chilean man trying to get his bearings in Nashville. Pic might qualify as the first Latin American-made mumblecore movie, preserving many of that genre's ambling, talky qualities, and adding the accent of a foreigner attempting to make sense of America, and maybe find a way into the music biz. Distribs typically averse to South American cinema may show interest, as will a long roster of fests.
