Movie Info

The artists of the internationally acclaimed performing arts troupe Cirque du Soleil appear in this dramatic fantasy, shot in the high-definition IMAX format, which celebrates the human spirit as it follows the life of one man from childhood to old age. The Taiko Drummers perform in a sequence that represents the dawn of mankind, and a synchronized swimming team performs a water ballet that symbolizes the beginning of life. The Flounes (Josette Dechene and Paul Vachon), a pair of stylized

Continues IMAX's silly trend of stringing together fabulous 3-D effects sequences with flimsy narratives.

The film is one of those rare entertainments that really is for the whole family - or at least everybody with a taste for friendly fantasy.

Audience Reviews for Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man

A wonderful journey through human existence, told in natural and poetic settings, and performed by Cirque du Soleil drummers, swimmers, clowns, acrobats, jugglers, and balancers. The music was mesmerizing and the costumes were nature's colors. It was narrated by Ian McKellan. The different settings of cave, pond, forest, canyon, ruin, palace and nighttime sky were very imaginative. It was all dreamy. I wished I had seen this on the big IMAX screen. Superb. One special occassion, I played it 10 times repeatedly as a background video.

This was unlike any Cirque du Soleil I've ever seen before in that it had an English narration (by Ian McKellen) and large amounts of the film dedicated to creating a coherent plot. There was far less focus on the actual circus tricks than a normal Cirque du Soleil movie (it seemed), but when they did come across the acts they were beautifully set and mesmerising as always. In fact, these moments are possibly even more memorable for their setting and their place in the plot.
