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.
