I can honestly say nothing has captivated me so quickly as this film,within a few minutes I was hooked and couldn't take my eyes off the screen.There is next to no dialogue,the story is all told visually,and it tells it with style and breathtaking flair.All of the acts are amazing,and almost all seem to defy gravity,from the Wheel of Death,which has to be seen to be believed.To the silk acrobatics,which are an aerial ballet,and are graceful,beautiful and mesmerizing in equal measure.
If,like me,you have never seen the Cirque du Soleli,this film gives you the best possible seat in the house.The clever camera angles and slow motion ensures that you don't miss a thing,even so some sequences need to be watched more than once just to take everything in.These performers really are the best there is at what they do,and what they do is out of this world.The musical accompaniment creates drama and,in some places,an ethereal charm that suits the visuals perfectly.Personally I cant fault this film,its everything I could want,and more besides.
