5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Dance of Romeo und Juliet motif done well Jan. 22 2013
By gt surber - Published on Amazon.com

This an Italian interpretation, danced in Germany, of the classic star crossed lovers motif. The music is a "musical montage" based on Sergei Prokokofiev "Romeo and Juliet." The details of the familiar Shakespeare are not here. Right up front the notes indicate that even the entire Prokofiev ballet score is not here. But, that said, the 101 minutes are outstanding, well presented dance with 9 couples dancing the agony, distress, passion, and death of the star crossed lovers.

The dancing is strong, sensual, emotional. The set is minimalistic. The costumes are simple and brief. The music is well played,leading the dancers but not obscuring them. The Romeo and Juliet motif comes through clearly. The photography is exceptional and intimate and brings out the passions and emotions of the dancers.

This is a very body celebratory production. While no genitalia, buttocks or female breasts are uncovered, the rest of all 9 male and 9 female bodies are photographically explored extremely close up. This is an European production so there is not the American body phobia. Also, every mole, black head and skin blemish is right up front and exposed. Many of the men proudly bear chest and abdominal hair. All the dancers sweat and breath heavy. There are many excellent closeup of faces. Many shots are of dance technic showing a limb moving slowly. I liked the style of the photography, but do understand that many would be put off by such body celebration. Actually the intimate photography adds to the beauty, intimacy and emotions of the production, displaying the male and female human forms in motion as art. This is definitively not homoerotic.

I just wish the producers of the dvd had put English subtitles on the introduction as well as the bonus interview. It is spoken in Italian with German over dubbed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Simply GREAT May 8 2012
By Mahler addict - Published on Amazon.com
This dvd is an extraordinary reinterpretation of the Prokofiev's score. It's intelligent, sensitive, provocative and danced with quiet good technic. It is not the full length version, but rather a selection of themes used to construe a radically new proposal.

However, this is certainly not a good choice for those who only like classic ballet.

For those, like myself, who enjoy both classical and modern dance (and anything good in between), this is a true jewel. Bigonzetti is simply one of the greatest choreographers of our time!
