5.0 out of 5 stars Review of “Pina” A film about Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 February 2022
After watching this DVD I’d now love to see the movie in 3D at a cinema.

The production values, of “Pina”, are extremely high. The sound design is magnificent. As are the sets, costumes and cinematography. The performers are superb. We see former performers, and current performers, tackling the same dance pieces, which is fascinating.

The “Extras” interview with Wim Wenders is quite short. It captures his emotions for Pina Bausch & her work, and something of his personality. He comments on some technical aspects of shooting in 3D, which, I guess, might be of interest to film makers and cinematographers. As with so many “Extras”, on DVDs, the production standards of the interview are pretty low.

I bought this because I was researching “poetic” artists (Romantics) through their work. People such as film makers; Andrei Tarkovsky, David Lynch, the painters; Balthus, Andrzej Jackowski, Anselm Keifer, & the writers Bruno Shultz & Franz Kafka i.e; art that explores the psyche. As with Lynch, and Tarkovsky, there are many Jungian references in Pina Bausch’s art and an exploration of psychological disorder.

“Pina” didn’t disappoint me. I don’t know an unpretentious way of saying this; by documenting them Wenders has put these dance pieces into the canon of European art. Another benefit, and very Wenders, is that some of the dance pieces are set in exteriors that are quite startling; for example; dances staged on, and in, the Wuppertal Suspension Railway, an aerial tram system built in the early 1900s, with commuters as part of the scenes. He also uses archive footage of Pina Bausch performing, which is quite telling.
