    Wonderful documentary about the necessity of arts in education. Great story construction, conflicts and photography. It is a must for arts educators.

    I often wondered how the documentary filmmakers chose the shown scenes because sometimes they were far from neutral (all those outdoor scenes where the public stares at the shown teenagers or smoking children to imply Marie comes from a bad neighbourhood) My favourite parts of this documentary were the musical rehearsals in the Berlin Philharmonic. Sir Simon Rattle was wonderful and to see which instrument plays which musical notes in Le Sacre du Printemps was mind-blowing!

    You can feel a sense of meditation when Sir Simon Rattle is doing his talk, revealing the idea of the project. Music and dance are not things coming with confusion, but something for you to imagine.

    A very interesting documentary about the pooling of several students trying to dance "Le Sacre du Printemps" by Igor Stravinsky under the conduction of several dancing-masters and Sir Simon Rattle who conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. A gripping study. What interested me the most was the work in the orchestra and the development of the students. Awesome! :)

    Pupils from Berlin learn to dance to Stravinsky's "le sacre du printemps". I've shown this movie to a lot of people, from grandparents to friends from school, and everybody found it amazing. it touches me a lot.

    If a documentary can make you interested in something that is not really your cup of tea, I reckon it's doing a great job. Highly life-affirming!
