Das Leben des Tanzlehrer Pierre Dulaine, das bereits die Doku „Mad Hot Ballroom“ inspirierte, wird hier nun als Spielfilm aufgearbeitet. Trotz augenscheinlicher Parallelen zu Filmen wie „Dangerous Minds“ und „Save the last Dance“ schafft es dieser Film doch eine gewissen Eigenständigkeit zu erreichen. Natürlich bedient sich auch dieser Film der Klischees die man... read more

I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since my wife loves movies about dancing, I thought I should check it out anyway. Furthermore, the ratings were pretty good, even Roger Ebert liked it so I thought it could be a nice surprise. Unfortunately, the whole thing was rather disappointing.

“I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since my wife loves movies about dancing, I thought I should check it out anyway. Furthermore, the ratings were pretty good, even Roger Ebert liked it so I thought it could be a nice surprise. Unfortunately, the whole thing was rather disappointing. I mean, it is a typical feature about an outsider who comes in a difficult school. It follows faithfully the rules of the genre but I thought it was terribly uninspired, uninspiring and rather dull to watch. It is pretty obvious that it is not a realistic movie and that it should be handled as some kind of fairy tale (to get the students attention, he just has to turn up the volume, the rich kid who really wants to dance with them,

Review

“Das Leben des Tanzlehrer Pierre Dulaine, das bereits die Doku „Mad Hot Ballroom“ inspirierte, wird hier nun als Spielfilm aufgearbeitet. Trotz augenscheinlicher Parallelen zu Filmen wie „Dangerous Minds“ und „Save the last Dance“ schafft es dieser Film doch eine gewissen Eigenständigkeit zu erreichen. Natürlich bedient sich auch dieser Film der Klischees die man schon aus den zuvor genannten Filmen kennt. Da gibt es die widerspenstigen Jugendlichen, den engagierten Lehrer, den aufmüpfigen Schwarzen und die uneinsichtige Umwelt. Trotz all dieser bekannten Elemente bleibt der Film unterhaltsam. Antonio Banderas ist als eleganter Tanzlehrer ideal besetzt und die jugendlichen Darsteller entsprechen dem stereotypen Rollenkorsett ohne negativ aufzufallen. D” read more
