Journey into the past
20 October 2014 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

A 40-something couple from Seattle arrives in New York to interview a flamboyant aging bi-sexual ballet teacher about his long career for a dissertation on classical dance. As the questions probe deeper, they begin to focus upon the man's relationship with a female fellow dancer, with whom he had enjoyed a brief affair many years previously. Before too long it becomes obvious this romance is the focus of the interviewers' interest, and their inquiries soon take a detour into uncomfortable territory.

Each of the three characters attracts both sympathy and antipathy at various times, with the dialog crackling with wit, pathos and hostility as the story changes direction, tone and pace like a switchback ride. The narrative travels through several different zones of the emotional spectrum until it eventually arrives at a sophisticated and satisfying conclusion. The three actors turn in excellent performances, and 'Match' provides gripping entertainment along with some thought-provoking insights about making art. Hopefully it will do well, and encourage producers to make more films of similar intelligence.
