The Musical OR Dance Movie
Wellington > 02

Interesting use of dance as a form of personal self-expression here. Perhaps the team were inspired by last year's Wellington runner up Compress? Seemed to have a lovely bent as a a couple who were clearly made for each other ran parallel lives, with interspersed action of them being together. A lot of feeling and I understand not using any proper dialogue I'm just not sure the non-linear approach strengthened the film.

Great Camera. Great Score, although it was artlist.
Unfortunately I wouldn't have called it a dance or musical.
And if you're going to go as far as to do the cancer thing, I wanna see some 'Shave your head' commitment.
The lead actress was captivating. Wonderfully directed and the use of split screen was really fun.
