Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away

From visionary film-maker James Cameron

Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away is a fine product to showcase the enchantment and amazement of a number of Cirque shows. The film is a "greatest hits" of sorts for Cirque fans, beautifully filmed under the direction of Andrew Adamson and produced by James Cameron. The story centers on Mia (Cirque performer Erica Linz), who, as the film opens, is visiting your standard-issue Circus. She is given a flyer to see a performer called The Aerialist (Cirque performer Igor Zaripov). When his show seemingly goes awry, the two are plunged into the world of Cirque. There are colorful tents on a barren landscape, with each containing a different Cirque show and adventure. Filmed on most of the dedicated stages to these shows in Las Vegas, with some clever lighting disguising the seats, Worlds Away really transplants the viewer to this world. Adamson wisely lets the performers speak for themselves, and they are nothing short of astonishing. From contortionists to death-defying stunts, these men and women truly disregard gravity and do so with elegance and grace. Reactions are likely to range from gasps to nervous laughter to complete giddiness. Adamson's script is very light on dialogue and asks nothing beyond facial reactions of Linz and Zaripov as actors. Those expecting a cohesive, well-thought out narrative will be disappointed. But then again, how many of us really see Cirque shows for the story? Sure, there is one, but you're there to see amazing acrobats perform. As a traditional movie, it leaves some to be desired. As a showcase for Cirque's astonishing assortment of shows, it's a must-see for fans. Courtesy: Bill Clark, From the Balcony Official Trailer
