A film so breath-takingly indulgent that even the phrase '3D arthouse film about modern dance' doesn't do it justice.
March 9, 2012
Mondern-dance documentary is visually dazzling but it doesn't make the slightest effort to invite the unconverted to the party.

With cinemas already overrun with rubbish 3D movies, Wim Wenders' first foray into faux-immersive filmmaking distinguishes itself by featuring the worst use of the technology thus far.

By virtue of its subject alone, enthusiasts of modern dance will devour Pina. If it was in a bottle, they'd drink every drop; if it was in a squeeze-tube, they would rub it on their skin.

This seems like a ripping good idea. In practice, "Pina" turns out to have a few problems.

Flawed as the film may be, it is still a celebration of the art of dance through the spiritual presence of Pina Bausch, one of the great choreographers of the twentieth century.

Pina is as rich in imagery and emotion as any film released this year and in some cases moreso.

Hopefully Pina will be the first of many to build a bridge between 3D and arthouse cinema.

What might seem like a convenient bid for publicity - the first 3-D art-house film! - turns out to be the only logical way to showcase the action.

I watched the film in a sort of reverie.

Pina is a tribute of an artist by an artist, a friend to a friend. But its great genius comes from the mournful, as well as celebratory, reckoning of the performers Bausch pushed, collaborated with and inspired.

An exhilarating experience, both in its celebration of Bausch's groundbreaking work and in the thrilling way that Wenders captures it on camera.

"Pina"is the best possible tribute to Bausch, and to adventurous image-making.

Combines a haunting elegy for the avant-garde choreographer Pina Bausch with a wondrously surreal evocation of her work.
