Normally I do not care for contemporary dance, But I was curious about this film. It was being played on TV around Christmas time, so with nothing better to do, i settled my curiosity. To my surprise it wasn't mind numbingly boring, sad or pretentious like i thought it was going to be. It's actually visually stunning. Fantastic lighting and a fascinating set. Some really damn good all round cinematography! I did expect for the dancers in the first scene to eventually speak and for a plot then start. But no, turns out it's just dancing... all the way through. I think I can safely say the majority of males watching this film would get bored eventually, unless he has an interest in dance or perhaps theatre. Females.. couldn't say. But I would say this film is worth at least 10 minutes of your time. To young aspiring art-film makers I would recommend watching this film. The colours are very sincere which make for a striking 'vogue!' appearance, and the lighting bedazzling, emphasizing the stunning moves of all the dancers.
But anyways, check it out even if only for a few moments. I think the open minded can appreciate the film for what it is and what it's trying to do. Plus you never know, you may find out you have a deep hidden passion for dance!
