Dai Urnal-Instants

Directs they dance still

On seeing "Pina" with Espe and Chris at the Little Theatre cinema.

The full title of the film is Pina - "tanzt, tanzt sonst sind we verloren" (Pina - "dance, dance or we are lost").

It's a gem by Wim Wenders composed of many of the dance sequences choreographed by Pina Bausch, and performed by present and former dancers of Tanztheater Wuppertal on whom this woman made such a great impression.

I enjoyed in particular the Cafe Müller and Full Moon sequences but there are many little cameos that give pleasure, both humorous and comical, moving and profound.

If you can catch it, whether 2D or 3D (we saw it in 2D), go see it.
