I'm always on the look out for a good sleazy film and "Snake Dancer", sounded about right. Biography of South African woman Glenda Kemp shows us a bit of life as a child and some of the adversities with family and those close to her as she pursued doing what she enjoyed best, dancing. The film follows Glenda briefly as a child and moves on quickly to adulthood just enough to get a background of key points in her life. We watch as her love for dancing grows throughout the film and her experiences shape her character into the woman she becomes. There are many good scenes of Glenda performing her exotic dance routines on stage in front of audiences. I thought the biographical portions of the film were shot quite nicely and I felt for Glenda as she fought adversity to follow her dreams against adversity. The exotic dancing were very good with using puppets and snakes with much ingenuity and energy. The only thing that I didn't like about the film was the last minute of the film. I won't spoil it for you but lets just say I had expected a better ending than the one portrayed in the film.
