Storyline

For 7 days and 8 nights, they dance again and again, lose the concept of time, braving their toil and their body. It rotates, laugh, it spin round, it cries, it sings. And the life pulse.

Amazing film, amazing atmosphere, amazing music
20 October 2018 | by anagram14See all my reviews

Having been to one single traditional ball, too many milongas and not enough folk concerts, I was eager to see this documentary on le grand bal de l'Europe. It succeeds in showing there is another world in ours. Warning: if you have any affinity whatsoever to folk music and dance, this will make you want to go to Gennetinnes!
