World's Away

Great! Incredible filming! I have seen many live shows and was blown away with the close up filming and variety of camera angles James Cameron used to create the story! It was wonderful to see performances from angles that one cannot get from sitting in the audience of a live show!

Plucked Straight from my Dreams!

have been to two Cirque du Soleil shows and they were surreal escapes from the waking world and beyond beautiful. For me they are like someone has come into my night time dream space and plucked out for the world to see the things I can only in a very futile way describe to others. I have no words to describe them. The movie though certainly short of the magic of being there in person was nonetheless amazing! My husband took me yesterday and we both were delighted our favorite movie of the year!

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.
