Since we all are "somebody", that's the kind of movie you want to be depicted by. It's lovely, it has atmosphere, it has affection. Makes you wanna get more into her work cause that's what seems to be the essence. To open your eyelids gently and tell you "This is what you've been missing".
Wonderful! It is both the best unification of choreography and cinematography, plus the best use of 3D.. Entrancing and moving, loved it
Such a beautiful film. As a dancer, I appreciate the mix of experimental and technical movement. As a creative dancer, I also adore the variety of locations-- on a traffic circle, monorail, tennis court-- +10 points for creativity. The 3D was just an added bonus-- not necessary, but made certain sequences (like the monorail) really pop. Recommend to anyone, even non-dancers.
"Dance, dance - otherwise we are lost." Beautiful, fun, maddening. I didn't know Pina, but I bet she would have loved this tribute. I sure did.
Can't believe I put off watching this inspiring doco and love letter from students to teacher for so long. Wenders has succeeded in presenting this portrait with the utmost respect in a manner that is immediately in symbiosis with the lady herself. The energy presented by these performers is exalting. 4 stars
Pina is a successful film in treating dance format into digital form. You really do not have to be a dancer to enjoy the beauty of Pina's works in this film, vis a vis a pompous disturbed physical performer to understand a dance theater. Most of Pina's breathtaking works are in these film and what makes it so special is that all the dancer's emotion are captured perfectly. Dance dance dance, otherwise we are lost.
I lost a chance of watchin' this in 3D form and I am regret it now , That because I thought that I may like Modern dance but i never would understand it, so, it was weird when I watched this movie and realize how it's easy and smooth to get through art and make it get through you .. It need nothing except a little courage to do it. My Favourite dances were: Joy and Lillies of the Valley
