Critic Reviews for Only When I Dance (Vida Ballet)
Casting is the key here, and Ms. Finzi chose wisely.
Finzi's lovingly filmed movie draws viewers into the lives of its two young heroes. You don't have to be a ballet buff to be moved by Isabela's and Irlan's stories.
What's unique to Beadie Finzi's debut feature is what it reveals about the financial, physical and emotional costs of talent.
British director Beadie Finzi follows both dancers to international competitions, where the difficult questions raised by their struggles are set aside.
It becomes impossible to take Only When I Dance seriously as more than the superficial account of a frustratingly tentative bystander.
Audience Reviews for Only When I Dance (Vida Ballet)
Pretty standard dance competition documentary following two talented young dancers from poor backgrounds in Rio who battle impossible odds for a chance to pursue their dream abroad. The stories are extraordinary and filled with inherent emotion, but the film is edited in such a way that it fails to capitalize on that, and one story outweighs the other both in terms of screen time and overall success. In the end, i lacks dramatic tension and narrative drive.
