5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable from more than one aspect, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Five Dances [DVD] (DVD)
This is a gay-themed film set against a modern ballet rehearsal(using real-life ballet dancers). As such it could better suit those looking for a gay theme although I see it a pure enjoyment on a number of levels. Reading a separate article by the director, he mentioned how he developed the story line and script as he was filming. The script is minimal but that does not hamper how we can imagine aspects of the characters, especially the two pivotal males. It allows I think nuances of interpretation e.g loneliness, lack of self-esteem, dysfunctional family life etc, however this in no way diminishes the enjoyment of the film - individual viewers may interpret these 'nuances' their own way. It's almost as if we observe everyday conversations between the characters as incidental events. The film's 'frame' is (modern) ballet and it is hard not to be in awe of the sheer skill, technique and quite frankly beauty of each dancer's performance. The story line is spread across 5 components of a dance performance that all are rehearsing for. I see this film as being an 'interlude' almost in the character's lives. I love this film. I've watched it quite a few times now and still enjoy the superb dancing - apart from the gentle romantic thread.
