Iconic and simplistic, it tells the story of your average working class young people with all despair, losses, hopes and dreams that they are meant to cherish as the days of old are getting closer no matter how painful certain experiences were. Which draws a nice parallel with 80s culture, fashion and music that are continuing to be one of the everlasting inspirations of modern times.
Flashy, shallow, undeniably iconic, female-led version of "Saturday Night Fever." As a director, Adrian Lyne just can't help himself, he has to make everything perfume commercial pretty and music video slick. The film often devolves into nothing more than a collection of music videos held together by working class cliches. Jennifer Beals is charming and the dance scenes are stylishly, sensually involving. 80's fun.
Una película simple y harto entretenida, que se deja ver sin dificultad. La banda sonora es brutal y el montaje se luce en las escenas de baile. Lo único decepcionante: la presencia de dobles de cuerpo en la icónica secuencia de la audición (se notan demasiado).
3.5/5. Weirdly structured film about going after what you want. Started out in a dull, "this film is going to be lame" way but moves to its own beat. I cannot describe Flashdance, only scenes within considering it's so episodic. And Jennifer Beals is definitely not 18...
