The Way We Dance

Kuang Wu Pai
2013 / 110m - Hong Kong
The Way We Dance poster

Typcial dance flick, Hong Kong style. The setup is pretty similar to its US peers, with elongated dance scenes alternating more traditional coming of age drama. The music is better than its US counterparts though and the film also looks a lot nicer, which makes it a lot easier to stomach.

Commissioned anthology that was made to lift the spirit of Hong Kong during the SARS epidemic. The who's who of Hong Kong cinema participated, but the result is a little uneven. Not too surprising considering the exterior motives behind this anthology, and there are a couple of worthwhile entries, but overall it's probably best to lower your expectations when watching this.
