Product Description

Product Description

A remake of the heartwarming Japanese comedy about a conservative family man who rediscovers the passion and love in his life through ballroom dancing.


This remake of the 1996 Japanese film that set unlikely box office records in its native country turns more on a sexy, cinematic dance revivalism than the charms of stars Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez. While its soundtrack never veers far from that noble task, it gratifyingly jolts its familiar rumbas and tango rhythms with a few modern musical kicks all its own. Pussycat Dolls' crisp, sensuous take of the standard "Sway" may subtly juice tradition, but Gotan Project's "Santa Maria" gives those familiar Latin rhythms a downright savory electronica makeover. Producer/arranger John Altman underscores tradition via his versions of chestnuts both lively ("Happy Feet") and ethno-apropos ("Espana Cani," "Perfidia," "Andalucia") and even a suitably schmaltzy cover of Mancini's signature "Moon River." Altman's sturdy musical background helps focus songs as diverse as Peter Gabriel's bittersweet "The Book of Love" and Gizelle O'Cole/Pilar Montenegro's vibrant, modern Latin-inflected title song, Jamie Cullum's club-beat-meets-lounge take on "I Could Have Danced All Night" and Miya's slinky, hip-hop seasoned remake of Bowie's "Let's Dance." --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars happy feet Oct. 22 2004
By D. Farrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you left the movie barely able to control the urge to dance, this soundtrack is for you. If the movie did not make you want to dance, stop right here -- I don't even want you reading my review! If you haven't seen the movie yet, rent the original Japanese version on video first. It will allow you to appreciate a quality remake, very faithful to the original but with small changes that make it very significantly American. Then buy the soundtrack and a single red rose for your sweetheart...and dance him or her to the end of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars SEE THE MOVIE Nov. 23 2004
By Mars Trader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
True, the music CD sells itself. But please don't judge or criticize a movie you haven't seen. I was not a fan of Gere or Lopez, but I have been so pleasantly surprised by dance movies that have a gentle storyline (like Strictly Ballroom) that I went and loved it. I came away very impressed by Lopez - she can act and she can dance - wow - and Gere was good too. He's not a champion dancer but he is right for the person designed for the story, believable and sincere. Hey, no sex, no violence, but lots of good honest passion, friendship and some real love too. The entire cast was well chosen, and the story came together with a natural feel. Updated November 2011. A couple of years ago while strolling through Heathrow I heard Lunático by Gotan Project (Audio CD - 2006). Gotan did one of the tracks in Shall We Dance. I highly recommend you pick up Lunático! Really good, powerful romantic music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the movie, just get the soundtrack! Feb. 20 2006
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The movie was amazing, I loved it! BUT THE SOUNDTRACK IS FAR TOO UNBELIEVEABLE FOR WORDS! And having said that, I can't say much more about it. It's just that good. Especially Santa Maria by GoTan Project. I know that song alone is worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuous Motion Oct. 17 2005
By Terpsichore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
And yes, I DID see the movie. I found it delightful, light hearted and oh so not offensive (as the current genre (of movies today)). Richard Gere is a long-time favorite and J-Lo is indeed as multi-talented as she is beautiful - those of us who watched her career from day one know that young lady CAN DANCE! The Tango Sequence, with the hottest track I've heard in awhile (Santa Maria/Gotan Project) made me want to get up and dance. I basically bought the CD for Santa Maria, but found that I liked the whole CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two to Tango Nov. 8 2004
By David Stapleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very nice, eclectic, set of music, from the quickstep of Happy Feet, to the tango of Santa Maria, to the Paso Doble of Espana Cani, to the Waltz of Moon River, it goes on and on, every song invites you to dance. If they had only found room for a little Merengue, I'd have given it five stars, but as is, this is a great album that should at least get you tapping your toes, if not on your feet with a partner or not.
