A 3D movie about a german dancer and choreographer? Sure thing I’d like to see it.
Pina was marvelous for the great part. Now I feel like I’m always tempering my take on movies but
there were a few moments during this posthumous homage that my butt complained in the seat.
But these were very fleeting moments, and the series of vignettes with dance were captivating.
- Talented performers of movement and form can be way more delightful in 3D than CGI.
- The love these dancers had for their mentor and colleague, Pina Bausch, was intensely wonderful.
- Her take on dance was awesome, as was the way she challenged and integrated the ideas of
her company. She transformed lives and I can see her influence in many things today.
- The movie is beautiful. Technology elevates it, but the settings, composition, dancers,
movement and sentiment combine to form a wonderful portrait of a woman’s life work.
