I Usually Loathe 'Modern Dance' But He Won Me Over
17 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end of this movie I was simply overwhelmed by the intense and poetic range of Ohad's creativity. The dances are always rooted in real human feeling and the living human body. Most touching moment for me was his troupe working with severely disabled children - picking them up and moving with them if they could hardly move at all. Knowing nothing of dance per se, I found his instructions to his troupe a real eye-opener, sometimes he is trying to say the un-sayable - but he manages to get it across somehow. Incidentally, I appreciate his traumatic memories of the 1973 Yom Kippur War when the Arab nations surprise attacked on the holiest day of the Jewish year, with a genocidal savagery as infamous as Pearl Harbor.
