Pina


Pina is one of those movies that really makes you appreciate the human body, especially when it comes to dance thanks to  director Wim Wenders tribute to the late choreographer Pina Bausch. Using state of the art photographer, this film takes the viewer on a very powerful journey about dance that through high definition filming, it makes you feel like you are part of this amazing production.

Mixing both contemporary and traditional dance, Pina is truly a surreal spectacular, especially with its surreal soundtrack thanks to Eduardo Melo and Jorge Machado which creates this strange journey into the subconsciousness of the mind. The routines are sometimes bizarre and at times, breathtaking which has this real raw human emotion and atmosphere to it.

Apart from the contemporary dancing, Wenders successfully merges snippets of Pina into the film from audio to video that definitely pays homage to the great Pina Bausch who unfortunately passed away in 2009. Nonetheless this is an outstanding dance documentary that will move you on many levels. I loved the studio dance routines and also the outdoor pieces which kept me captivated.

Video, Audio & Final Thoughts

Video quality is outstanding on Blu-ray as is the audio quality but unfortunately there are no special features included in this release. As the original theatrical release was 3D, I sincerely hope that Hopscotch will release a 3D version in this country because seeing it in 3D will definitely be a wow moment! Recommended!
