There are no big stars here - unless you were a huge fan of TV's "Cheers" and remember John Ratzenger as Cliff, the mailman. (I was not so I didn't have a character image of Ratzenger in my mind before viewing this film.) He is perfect for the role of the barber who is struggling to make a living in suburban Reno, Nevada. He is matched is his talent by Shelly Cole, as the young woman who made some made "life" decisions and now wants to get her life in order.
Writer Director Chris Cole is practically never mentioned in the publicity for this film but without him there would be no "Village Barbershop". Hos background was in commercials and this project is his first screenplay and film and yet you'd never know that. The script is tight and the film is the right length. His directorial skills shine on "little images" like the Chinese fortune cookie messages mounted around a mirror in one frame. (You'll remember that image days after viewing the film.)
I don't even want to discus the plot here because it will only distract from the surprises. This is a "small film" and is best enjoyed without too much advance plot hints.
The DVD comes with some bonus features - which are creative but short. One is a 2-minute history of the occupation of "barbering".Read more ›
When I first saw the main character was the guy from Cheers, I cringed. But he was perfect.
Great story line (so many may can relate) fantastic music, just wish they had cut a music cd and sold it, great acting, good scenes, overall a good use of my Sunday afternoon.
I will watch again, and have referred to my social media friends. Good job, give me more!!

Shelly Cole was awesome and so was Ratz! It's a sweet love story, not in a romantic way though. It's a simple story about 2 people who are alone in the world and find each other. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
