Storyline

A child is born. We see underwater swimmers representing this. He is young, in a jungle setting, with two fanciful "instincts" guiding him as swooping bird-like acrobats initially menace, then delight. As an adolescent, he enters a desert, where a man spins a large cube of metal tubing. He leaves his instinct-guides behind, and enters a garden where two statues dance in a pond. As he watches their sensual acrobatics of love, he becomes a man. He is offered wealth (represented by a golden hat) by a devil figure. In a richly decorated room, a scruffy troupe of a dozen acrobats and a little girl reawaken the old man's youthful nature and love. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A long advertisement for Cirque du Soleil.
3 July 2000 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

As per my expectations I was completely enthralled by the vividness and wonderment that usually accompanies a Cirque Du Soleil performance, however, at 45 minutes (I estimated only 35 minutes excluding the credits) it was only a tease. Just as your starting to get into the story it's over. My wait in line to get tickets was longer than the movie! As an advertisement for their shows it was on the mark, as a stand-alone piece…what a disappointment.
