Audience Reviews for Legong: Dance of the Virgins
As much a travelogue as a love story, this simple story of "girl loves boy, boy loves another" is memorable in that it was filmed in Bali with authentic native people in all the major roles. Examples of native dancing, customs and folklife fill the screen, made even more vivid by being filmed in two-strip Technicolor. It is also said to be one of the last official "silent" films. A sad, sweet film.
one of the last feature films produced in the two-strip technicolor process was this interesting piece filmed entirely in bali with all-native cast in 1933. the story follows a temple dancer who chooses her future husband only to have him fall for her sister, bringing heartbreak and disgrace. native dancing and rituals are featured. the censors were more lenient with nudity in alleged anthropological studies!
