Amazing show...amazing strength and beauty of the human body...cinematography was simply perfection....this was better than seeing it in person...fabulous costuming and make-up...perfect musical score....the show was so incredibly amazing, i will buy this movie when it comes out on 3D dvd! We took 3 children with us, ages 12, 7 and 4....the two older children were enthralled and loved it...the younger was antsy and seemed bored....

Not child friendly

We took our 6 & 7 year old kids and they were frightened by some of the imagery (think, Drama like 'Alice In Wonderland'). Of course they may have been set off initially by some of the scary previews. But my wife and I enjoyed it. My parents, who have been to a couple of live Circ performances said that this is a great and inexpensive way to experience many of the different circ shows.

A sampler of different Cirque shows, spliced together to make a movie. No overriding plot, but excellent visuals showing the grace and athleticism of the performers. Sit back and just take in the visual beauty.

This movie had beautiful visuals and there were no real acion packed fights; however; I really did not expect one. I showed love, compassion and excellent visuals. It was a GREAT investment fr the dollar.

A sampler of Cirque

You do not have to have seen any other Cirque shows to enjoy the movie, but if you have seen any I think you may enjoy the movie more. For me,too many of the Cirque de Soleil shows are very impressive circus shows. It's shows like Ka that I like the most because of the story line and the action around it. In Worlds Away there is a story that links the action and gives it a goal. Parts of various shows are woven around the central story line. These are performed on the specialized stages built for the various shows. One of the significant differences between viewing the movie and being in the audience at the various shows is that in the movie you get camera perspectives you do not get in the auditorium of the show--close-ups and views from above. But, from the auditorium the size of things and the control of sound in the room (as in Ka) are not reproduced in the movie. The duet, between the girl and the Aerialist, at the end with the forest scene from Ka was very moving.
