Movie Info

After a decade of stardom in Israel, American dancer Bobbi Jene decides to leave behind her prominent position at the world-famous Batsheva Dance Company, as well as the love of her life, to return to the U.S. to create her own boundary breaking art. Tracking the personal and professional challenges that await her, Elvira Lind's film lovingly and intimately documents the dilemmas and inevitable consequences of ambition. BOBBI JENE delves into what it takes for a woman to gain her own independence in the extremely competitive world of dance and to find self-fulfillment in the process.

There may be an intriguing, perhaps even profound story behind Smith's growth as a singular artist and woman, but director Elvira Lind keeps too much on the surface, making it hard to invest in Smith's often esoteric, self-centered journey.

It doesn't know what it wants to be, or what story it wants to tell.

"Bobbi Jene" may interest viewers who are well versed in contemporary dance. All others are on their own.

Bobbi Jene gives you a taste of how a choreographer works, but mainly registers how she feels.

"I want to get to the place where I have no strength to hide anything," she says of her work. Yet as a portrait of real life, "Bobbi Jene" doesn't require her to be very revealing, and she doesn't volunteer it.

The dancer Bobbi Jene is a gift to us all; the film, alas, not much of a gift at all.
