Storyline

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.

One of the best documentaries.
29 October 2004 | by alex-plamperSee all my reviews

This docu is a great one. The story: How several schools in Berlin with pupils of low social status and dance students are brought to dance Le Sacre du Printemps with the Berlin Philharmonics under Sir Simon Rattle. The movie picks several students and follows them as the weeks progress. You learn about their characters and how they cope with this new situation. You also get to know the choreographer and of course the conductor Sir Simon Rattle. For example how the dynamic and energy flows from the orchestra through the conductor is the way Simon Rattle gets his high. The choreographer tells about his upbringing, how he came to love dancing. It is really a great documentary, funny and interesting.
