In his exhilarating new film, German master Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, The Buena Vista Social Club) captures the brilliantly inventive dance world of legendary choreographer Pina Bausch. Wenders had conceived with Bausch a dance film like none seen before, one which would take the viewer deep inside Bausch's playful, thrillingly unpredictable pieces. After her untimely death in 2009, Wenders continued with the project, turning it into the most exciting tribute he could imagine. Sensual and visually stunning, PINA takes the audience into Bausch's work in her imaginative sets (a gliding monorail, a bare stage covered with chairs, a towering man-made waterfall) and powerfully rendering the beauty and sheer physicality of the dances and dancers of her Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble.
Director Wim Wenders. 103 mins, Rated PG. German, French, English, Spanish, Croatian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Korean with subtitles.
