Dance movies — The Red Shoes and Pina

15 06 2013

Watched The Red Shoes (1948) last night and thought it was amazing. Just loved it. One of my new favourite films. And then, I watched Pina (2011) and thought… am I missing something? Or do I just not ”get” it? I mean, I know I may not understand modern dance, but it would’ve been helpful if I knew what the dance pieces meant– for the dancers, for Wenders, for Pina– so that the wonderfully staged dance sequences are more accessible to everyone, not simply dance fanatics.

So yeah. Check out The Red Shoes because it’s damn awesome.
