Storyline

In Crazy Horse, he pulls back the curtain on Le Crazy Horse de Paris, a landmark that has prided itself as "the best nude dancing show in the world" since 1951. Le Crazy Horse sets itself apart from the average strip club by adhering to exacting standards in choreography, lights and physiques. The erotic revue is composed of songs and sequences that blend traits of old-fashioned burlesque, Bob Fosse and Cirque du Soleil, designed not only for the enjoyment of men, but also couples.

Crazy Horse from inside
24 March 2012 | by georgioskarpouzasSee all my reviews

This movie was played in Greece thanks to the 13nth Festival of French-speaking Film. It is a documentary about the world famous Paris cabaret "Crazy Horse" where a show featuring very scantily dressed girls takes place. It has been made by an eminent documentary maker and it is a combination of the live show and rehearsals with the everyday day aspects of life of the contributors to the show as well as the discussions between the director, the artistic director, the costumes expert and a representative of the shareholders. It also shows an audition for new girls who want to enter the show.

It has an aura of realism since there is no effort to distance the viewer from what is presented but everything is realistically portrayed. This applies mainly to the sequences where we watch the inside workings of the show creating and show managing process, where the various participants try to make their view and opinions prevail. In the rehearsals we learn about the effort and pain needed to achieve the glamorous spectacle. The spectacle itself is a very artistic and stylish form of soft pornography.

If you have any affinity with dance and are not bored with documentaries and if you are not much of a prude this is a movie to watch.
