Blues Brothers

Gleich nachdem Jake Blues aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, besuchen er und sein Bruder Elwood das Waisenhaus, in dem sie großgezogen wurden. Dort müssen sie erfahren, dass das Waisenhaus an das Kultusministerium verkauft werden soll. Es gibt nur eine Chance auf Rettung: Innerhalb von elf Tagen muss die Grundsteuer bezahlt werden. Die Brüder beschließen das Geld aufzutreiben, indem sie ihre alte Blues-Band wieder zusammenstellen und ein großes Konzert geben.

The Blues Brothers - I fratelli Blues
  • a.k.a. The Blues Brothers

Tre anni dopo essere finito dietro le sbarre, il rapinatore armato Jake Blues viene liberato per buona condotta. Ad attenderlo fuori dal carcere c'è il fratello Elwood, una ex fidanzata inferocita, la notizia che l'orfanotrofio dove sono cresciuti sta per essere chiuso e l'illuminazione divina. Convinti di essere in missione per conto di Dio i Blues brothers riuniscono con le buone e le cattive la vecchia band e organizzano un grande concerto benefico mentre fuggono da polizia, una banda di musicisti, il proprietario di un locale e i nazisti dell'Illinois che li vogliono fare fuori.

The Blues Brothers is a 1980 American musical crime comedy film directed by John Landis. It stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as "Joliet" Jake and Elwood Blues, characters developed from "The Blues Brothers" musical sketch on the NBC variety series Saturday Night Live. The 1998 sequel, Blues Brothers 2000, had similar traits to the original, including large car-chase scenes and musical numbers. Landis returned to direct the film and Aykroyd reprised his role, joining John Goodman, Joe Morton, and 10-year-old J. Evan Bonifant as the new Blues Brothers.
