German director Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) directs this 3D art-house documentary about avant garde dance choreographer Pina Bausch. The film isn't particularly elucidative, offering plenty (some might say an overwhelming amount) of the recently deceased dancer's experimental routines with little background or explanation. The visuals are often stunning, and Wenders' self-conscious style only heightens the theatricality of Pina's work. But if you aren't already a fan of modern interpretive dance, this isn't for you. 103 minutes PG.
