Smoke Signals tells the tale of the Coeur D'Alene American Indians Victor Joseph and Thomas Builds-the Fire as they travel from their reservation to Phoenix AZ to retrieve the ashes of Victor's father. Billed as a comedy this movie is more of a story of friendship and personal enlightenment. Excellent entertainment.

I went about 30 minutes in and I'm not much impressed which is disappointing. The comedy falls rather flat and I don't find the story moving much. In the hopes it will improve I will watch the rest...sometime soon.

Everything about this film I found delightful. All the actors were great in it, and its great to see Gary Farmer!
