Terrific documentary of love and dance, 24 June 2011
Author: runamokprods from US

Wonderfully funny, warm, ultimately moving and inspiring story of the 50 year marriage of dancers and choreographers Geoffrey Holder and Carmen De Lavallade.

It covers their effect on American and world dance. Geoffrey has seemingly endless talents -- painter, author, costume designer, director, and Carmen has seemingly endless youth. At 71 she still is a magnificent, flowing dancer.

A celebration of love, and creativity walking hand in hand.

My only very minor quibble is I wish some of the dancing clips were longer. At only 82 minutes the film could have easily allowed us to enjoy their sublime work a few minutes longer.
