A stirring and solid tribute to the late dance instructor.
| Original Score: 3.0/5
a stark, invigorating reminder that great art never dies with the artist
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The creative marriage of two real artists, Pina and Wim, turns out better than even a Dale Carnegie bred optimist could hope for
| Original Score: 86/100
...as beautiful as it is perplexing.
Joy, anger, terror, grief - the entire range of human experience can be found in these dances.
Wenders usa sua própria forma de expressão artística (o Cinema) para recriar e enriquecer a obra de Bausch.
| Original Score: 5/5
'Undefeated' won the Oscar, but the most truly inspiring of the Documentary Feature nominees is 'Pina.' I know next to nothing about dance, and I was mesmerized.
| Original Score: 4/4
Mondern-dance documentary is visually dazzling but it doesn't make the slightest effort to invite the unconverted to the party.
| Original Score: 3/5
Watching Pina is like being inside one of Bausch's surreal pieces.
A remarkable -- and likely enduring -- tribute to an artist committed to creating dance theater drawn from humanity's deepest physical and emotional reserves.
Bring someone who doubts that movies can surprise us anymore. ... Bring somebody who isn't yet excited about stereoscopic cinema. They'll change their minds.
| Original Score: A
Most documentaries put us inside people's heads. The dazzling, experimental Pina puts us inside people's feet.
[An] utterly transfixing, exhilarating spectacle of bodies in motion.
| Original Score: 4/5
The 3-D is so subtle, unobtrusive and low-key that at times I felt like I was watching the movie through a View-Master rather than the requisite plastic glasses. That's not meant as a knock.
"Pina" isn't just for dance fans or those curious about the latest in 3-D. It's a celebration of life.
An immersive moviegoing experience beyond imagination.
A unique and often sublime artistic experience, "Pina" is a 3-D dance film that immerses us in the movement, letting us feel that we could reach out and touch these dancers as they float past us.
Outsiders might have more difficulty comprehending Bausch's mastery, especially whacked up into bite-sized pieces of inscrutable emotion and abrupt movement.
| Original Score: B-
Dance fans won't want to miss it, but be prepared to be frustrated almost as often as you're awed.
For anyone with an interest in dance, "Pina" is a must-see. For anyone not interested in contemporary dance, "Pina" is a should-see. It could change your mind.
