What a treat

Watching modern dance in 3D was an amazing experience - I think this technology just found a great new application! The dance was really modern - using water and dirt on stage to great effect as well as outdoors. Almost any movement was interpreted as dance, and some of them send shivers down your spine. There is no story there, but a series of performances and dancers giving tribute to the choreographer. I really enjoyed it though it felt just a bit too long.

This film is about 90% modern dance performed by a world renowned troupe of inspired dancers paying tribute to their recently deceased instructor. It is directed by one of the master film makers of our time. There were 8 people in the theater when I saw it, two of them walked out mid-way through. I am going to see it again.

Dance. Has a "dance" ever changed your life? Were you born to dance? Is it part of your DNA? Dancing has the power to transcend every feeling: heartbreak, loss, meaningless migraines of minutia. Dance can free one of tireless shackles that dampen spirits, cloud vision, bulldoze barriers clutching, smothering youthful vibrancy. Nothing screams love, passion, unlimited joy more than a dance; dancing is a catharsis; the laughter, language, narrative of life... Anyone who has read the above paragraph and can relate, "Pina" is a must, a bible for the addicted dancer, or aficionado of the skill. Dancing comes from the soul, it has northing to do with "training" or "professionalism"; those who love to dance, understand the mythic energy that invades and conquers one's body; powerless to resist, moving as if your life lasts only for the duration of the song: it is water, wine, sustenance and unmitigated happiness... FIVE STARS!!!!! ***For full review please visit peneflix.com

True piece of art

There is so much exposure to the pop culture and BS that real art gets forgotten. This movie is a good reminder.
