  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Complaint of an Empress

    If you want to get technical, and I do, her first film was Cafe Muller. Cafe was a single piece and this is a collection. Dance begins and ends with Pina.

  2. yen's rating of the film The Complaint of an Empress

    There is always integrity in Pina's choreographed performances, regardless of whether they have a clear content or not, and this is still maintained today by the Tanztheater Wuppertal. That integrity was reflected in this film because from the cast (the dancers), their movements, the pace, the structure of the film, to even the music, all were embedded with Pina's signatory style. You can always tell her presence.

  3. soiwaswrong's rating of the film The Complaint of an Empress

    It's like watching a collaboration of Jarman, Lynch and Paradjanov..

  4. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The Complaint of an Empress

    after all those immoral tales of morality, how refeshing and beautiful can be the lack of logic and of talk. it is like going back to the dawn of the avant-garde , which considered the narrative as an abusive excrescence and the attempt at objectivity inside crreation, which is alway subjective, as hilarious. but those are big words. the simple way to put it is: i loved it.
