This week’s movie was Mao’s Last Dancer. Here’s my review on it!
My reviews never contain spoilers.
Mao’s Last Dancer
Time Run: 117 Minutes
Director: Bruce Beresford
Writer(s): Jan Sardi and Cunxin Li
Starring: Chi Cao, Bruce Greenwood and Kyle MacLachlan
Pros: Interesting dance, unique twist, a little entertaining
Cons: Boring, drawn out, confusing, lighting too dark
My Biggest Problem: My biggest problem with this movie is although the plot is a bit interesting, I only found the dancing entertaining. The story was a bit too confusing yet boring and drawn out for me to follow so I just enjoyed watching the ballet.
My Favorite Feature: My favorite part was either the dancing in general or the way that they showed Chinese ballet students being trained. I don’t know if it’s really how it happens, but it struck as interesting to me. It reminded me a little of German ballet training, but even more strict.
IMDb’s Stars (out of ten): 7.2/10
