Storyline

A singer struggles to dance well in rehearsal with her band. A power outage leaves her alone in the studio, reviewing her life, when a mysterious woman appears through the mirror and gives her a pair of Red Shoes. The cursed shoes dance beautifully, but endlessly. The singer is drawn irresistibly into the fey world beyond the mirror, where she must redeem three magic symbols from the mysterious woman in order to obtain release from the cursed shoes.

Kate Bush: Female Genius At Work (re:Line,Cross,&The Curve)
8 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at the NuArt (West L.A.) theater in California some time ago.

Just want to add how much I myself enjoyed the work of this artist.

Though KATE BUSH supposedly downplays her own creation as "not her best work" this film,nonetheless,DOES have substantial merit.

"The Line,The Cross,and the Curve" delves into the archetypical and down into the roots of human life itself.

Something like an ordinary Everyman (or,in this case,an Everywoman) drawn into extraordinary situations. That's the kind of storytelling genius that the late Alfred Hitchcock used to use.

From being plucked from her musician life into a nightmarish purgatory and then being rescued by the forces of nature and good.....this is part of the adventure.

My favorite part of the film is when Kate's character is chasing the evil witch-character....a chase through all Eternity but Good triumphs over Evil. And Evil is put back in its place where it belongs.

Really a shame,that this film was not released theatrically in more places. Because, it needs to be seen on the big screen for full effect.
