Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away: Something New Under the Sun
An awesome adventure! Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away is a love story with a heroine who speaks only two words and a hero who never speaks at all. It is an amazing, exotic, somewhat erotic journey into the worlds of the circus, of dance, acrobatics, gymnastics, and clowning, of the shadow sides of life, full of mystery.
This movie is outside the box at every level: 3D that is used well, not overwhelming; real people with images from anime; cultures and costumes from all over this world, and music that seems out of this world.
At one point, an aerialist inside a cube becomes a juggler spinning and tossing the same cube. This, to me, is what Worlds Away is all about - the human capacity to turn life inside out, see things in new ways, and create wonder.
