'Pina', although a tender tribute to one of the world's greatest creative minds, Pina Bausch, by longtime friend and director Wim Wenders, seems a bit conflicted in its flavor as a film. It's largely a performance piece, starring the members of the late Bausch's dance company, Tanztheater Wuppertal. The art of the film belongs to them, they are the actors, and Pina the true director. Wenders's contribution is what..↓
Absolutely stunning, the dancing was as to be expected top notch, but take a good look at the shots and the locations too. You'll see that a lot of craftsmanship has gone into this movie. The amount of love that these dancers have for the late Pina is amazing and it shows, very emotionally powerful.
Bin weder Fan von Tanz noch von Wenders, aber das ist ein handwerklich ausgezeichnet (in 3D!) gemachter Film in dem der Regisseur viel Empathie für seine Darsteller zeigt, die natürlich alle großartig sind. Zudem ist die Sache auch noch wirklich unterhaltend.
