My friend Sami and I decided to go see ‘The Dance of the Two Left Feet’ almost as soon as we had the brochure in our hands. We flipped through it as we sat outside of the Cheesecake Factory and both went ‘I want to see this’ at practically the same time. Of course, the fact that I love watching films about same-sex relationships and she thought that the two actors were hot probably had something to do with that decision, but what matters is that we decided to go and see it. We cleared our schedule and drove down to the theater, our hopes for the film quite high.
I got nachos and Sami sat on the edge of her seat.
The film glitched in the beginning and an error popped up in front of the movie and told us that an update was available. That got fixed pretty quick and they ran the film back to where it was before the message popped up. I found the entire film quite enjoyable. I’ve always liked watching films with subtitles, even though it meant looking away from the lovely images once in a while to read. What I especially enjoyed was the poetry. I thought that it suited the circumstances that were illustrated by the film quite admirably. I need to figure out how to hunt down ere they got it from, since I forgot who they said originally wrote the poetry.
There other thing that I really liked was how the film was visually erotic with the dancing without ever crossing the line that would make it racy or obscene. I gave me a burning desire to draw dancers, since their poses and flow of movement is so beautiful. Overall, I thought that it was a lovely film and ended up buying the soundtrack for Sami when it was over. I’d love to see it again if it was ever released in theaters again or on DVD.
