I could watch the dancing forever
30 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Being a dancer myself, I loved the fact that the film was centred around that theme, without needing to build a deep plot line. It told a story within itself. At times, it conveyed the characters' emotions possibly more than words could, it just fit, especially the piece nearer the end between Chip and Theo. I found it beautiful and emotional.

I also really empathised for Cynthia when she's crying in her bathroom and we can hear her husband's voice in the background.

I'm not sure what Chip's mum added to the storyline, perhaps it could have been replaced with more of a story line between the two men.

The music was evocative at times, some I didn't like completely, I liked it when we just heard the dancers' breath and even when it was silent.

Overall, it was a really enjoyable film, really emotional and it was brilliant when Chip started to connect with everyone else.
