Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 05/01/2011
"[PINA] points the path to regeneration, by moving dance into strange, suggestive landscapes
Total Film - 06/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hen the extra-dimensional dancing is afoot, PINA all but spills out of the frame with vim and vigour."
Wall Street Journal - 09/09/2011
"[PINA] takes unprecedented advantage of 3-D....PINA brings new meaning to the notion of a leap of faith, and new immediacy to filmed dance."
Movieline - 12/21/2011
"[A] heartfelt -- and visually gorgeous -- celebration of Bausch's work and her mode of working."
A.V. Club - 12/22/2011
"[A] marvel, with Wenders making at-times-visionary use of the 3-D technology, treating the frame like a stage with multiple planes of action."
Los Angeles Times - 01/13/2012
"PINA is a knockout....The performance documentary takes us inside Bausch's extraordinary dances in a way that nothing else could."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/13/2012
"Wenders uses this old/new interesting/gimmicky technology to play with the human perception of dimensionality as something subtle and profound, and not just a snazzy trick. The result in PINA," -- Grade: A
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/18/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[Wenders] visually dramatizes the spaces between the actors by moving his camera on a crane so that the POV places us on the stage and moving among the dancers."
Box Office - 01/31/2012
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] stylish, heartfelt tribute....It's a mood piece more than a conventional documentary..."

Product Description:

Pina Bausch was one of Europe's most celebrated choreographers, fusing the discipline of ballet with the freedom of modern dance and approaching her material in a bold, innovative and emotionally compelling manner. Bausch made the acquaintance of German filmmaker Wim Wenders, and he began making a documentary about her life and work. The focus of Wenders' film shifted dramatically in 2009, when Bausch was diagnosed with cancer and died only a few days later. Wenders considered abandoning the project, but after meeting with the members of her dance company, Tanztheater Wuppertal, Wenders chose instead to create a cinematic interpretation of Bausch's art, preserving several of her pieces and the work of her dancers for the ages. PINA is the result, a performance film that takes several of Bausch's dance pieces into the open and celebrates the beauty and physicality of dance; the film was shot in 3D to give a greater sense of the power and interplay of bodies in motion. PINA received its North American premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
