"Buster's Mal Heart" - New movie 'made for and influenced by Montana'

May 18, 2017View for printing

Jonah is a bilingual desk clerk working an emotionally wearisome hotel job in Montana. Buster is a puzzling mountain man who breaks into people's vacation homes for food and shelter and occasionally defecates in their kitchen pots.

How the two men are connected and the relationship between them is the crux of "Buster's Mal Heart," a well-crafted mystery-thriller in which the title character is haunted by visions of a past life while being pursued by the authorities. The movie was shot in and around Kalispell in October and November 2015.
