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. Written by Karen Newcombe <kln@sirius.com>

Iffy
5 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm just bouncing all my old VHSs to DVD to save space and was watching this during the process and began to remember how uncomfortable I felt each time I watched it. Yes it has some excellent music, though most Kate fans will concur that it it's not her best material by far, but her acting is so cringe-worthy it makes Bowie look good. I don't want to put too much of a downer on it, as any self-respecting KB fan should watch it, but it's not just Kate's acting that's a bit iffy as many of the supporting roles and the screenplay are unexciting at best. As a device to link together some reasonably good videos it just about works but I think I may do a version that skips out the storyline entirely.

FYI her best performance was in the Comic Strip episode 'Les Dogs' though I can't recall if she says that much. She's still gorgeous and is almost without doubt the most significant female singer-songwriter in the history of modern music.
