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.

Find your life
5 December 2004 | by (Aachen, Germany) – See all my reviews

You can find your life in a dance class!! 250 young adolescents, who have never danced before, and a lot of them come from the lower class in the society, some even exiled from other countries, will dance to the Stravinsky's "Le Sacre du Printemps". The new conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle, leads the project. He believes that the music, the classic music, is not only for people from higher class of the society, but belongs to all people. It is just like water and air, people need music to live.

The life in the movie!! If young people with low self-estimation dance, what would happen? Can you find your lack of self confidence in your way of dancing? The most attracting part of this movie describes the most deepest ego in the human-being, even when you move, you will show your character immediately. Through the dancing in a modern ballet, the adolescents find their power, their values that they have never had in their life, some of them even want to be a professional dancer.

What a wonderful movie!! Only thinking of the changing of children will touch me deeply. I really recommend it. 10/10
