Pina review

Posted : 4 years, 11 months ago on 15 July 2012 07:59 (A review of Pina)

This documentation about Pina Bausch was so touching in 3D it took my breath away.
In almost 100 minutes Wim Wenders takes you to a great journey with an enormous intensity. And then you never want to see anything else but this movie, this dance, this movement, because it makes you happy in an extraordinary way.
Altough there are a lot of scenes which are differentiated in their details, they always relate to each other. And Wim creates an unity with all those different dancers and locations so that there's emerging a big picture of the whole.
You learn what it means to live and feel by the movements, dances and gestures. You come to know that the body is everything you need for an expression and that words aren't unimportant but less necessary. It is even painful to avert one's gaze from the screen because you don't want to loose that charming situation and you want to absorb as much power, energy and life from it as you can.
Not least the meaning of Pina Bausch's life and her dedication to expressions, feelings and simply the wish of being alive impressed me very much. The brief but intense interviews bring the message home that Pina was loved by her company and that she was an extraordinarily great teacher and that she must have understood a lot of our world, because she created such a beautiful art.

The movie makes me longing for dancing, longing for to express myself. "Dance, dance otherwise we are lost", Pina says and she's right. I made that quote to my own mantra. I wish I would've known her personal.
