Critic Reviews for Dancing In Jaffa
We barely get to know the children or see much of their dancing. By the time the winner of the competition is announced, it is not much of a surprise, and there is little emotional payout.
Dulaine comes off as grossly opportunistic, playing the compassionate clown with the children and using the most self-aggrandizing language imaginable to explain his methods to teachers and parents.
"Dancing in Jaffa" is a charming, often moving documentary about how dance can work magic in breaking down barriers.
While the movie can feel disjointed at times, bouncing around to cover so much territory, the climax of the kids's ballroom competition makes up for any quibbles.
Audience Reviews for Dancing In Jaffa
Very well made Documentary about the performing arts of dance. Mixing that with political views, religion, and children is difficult to do, and they do a great job pulling it off as sympathetic and enjoyable to watch.
"Dancing in Jaffa" is an exceptional, beautiful documentary about how to solve thee Middle East crisis one dance at a time. The remarkable element which places this film "over the top," is the way in which we get "inside the heads" of the Palestinian and Israeli students to see how they figure out how to break down the long existing walls of prejudice and hatred and rebuild a new beginning in which they teach their elders how to speak to each other and dance. Bravo and thanks to all who took part in making this most enjoyable film.
