This film lifted my heart---and made me think!

THE NICHOLAS BROTHERS: We Sing and We Dance, (1992)

The Nicholas Brothers are presented here in a way that reflects the joy and intrinsic goodness that seemed to come from their hearts, and express itself in brilliantly conceived and executed performances. I was particularly moved by a brief segment showing the two as children, unself-consciously playing and dancing down a length of sidewalk. They appeared as enchanted creatures, almost out of place in this world.

The film addresses the difficult issues in their lives, such as Harold's health problems, and the fact that in the U.S. they were considered 2nd class citizens because of their race. They triumphed by moving to Europe, where they were eagerly welcomed and appropriately valued.

The interview with the dancers as men in their later years was a special treat, for it showed them still imbued with the same gentle, enchanted grace and graciousness that has marked their entire lives.

The film made me want to be a better, finer person, and to seek the joy within myself and my life. I will return to it often, when I need to be reminded that joy and goodness can triumph over sadness and cynicism.
