RHYTHM IS IT! records the first big educational project of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle. The orchestra ventured out of the ivory tower of high culture into boroughs of low life for the sake of 250 youngsters. They had been strangers to classical music, but after arduous but thrilling preparation they danced to Stravinsky's 'Le Sacre du Printemps' ('The Rite of Spring'). Recorded with a breathtaking fidelity of sound, this film from Thomas Grube and Enrique Sánchez Lansch documents the stages of the Sacre project and offers deep insights into the rehearsals of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

i had the pleasure to see Rhythm IS IT very early and was touched deep inside. i'm glad more people over here get to the point of the story - yet. when the first and only comment over here was the one of mr. devold i was disappointed a little. he watched the movie from a different angle, i'm sure.
Simon Rattle & Royston Maldoom (choreographer) did such a gorgeous job. it's a pleasure to see the intention of those kids changing. for those might have any doubts about, i ensure you no one was told of what to do or say.
this is not michael more, not docu-fiction it is a documentary.
