    And Then We Danced

    ★★★★★

    Oh wow. So beautiful in every sense of the word. The characters, the relationships, the dance, the music, the intimacy, the cinematography... I just fell in love with the movie. Very good performance by Levan Gelbakhiani too, his portrayal is so tender and sweet but really powerful (that last scene !!).

    The scenes with Abba and Robyn too. Ugggh, so much beauty.

    Such an important subject too. Reading about the troubles the crew went through to get this done made it so much more precious.

    And only him can pull this off, it was both hilarious and anxiety-inducing, just like Being John Malkovich. So brillant. Nicolas Cage is really good in these roles.
    So heartbreaking to recognize yourself in the main character though, minus the talent Kaufman has of course. .. Hahaha... Ha...…

    Français, regardez moi. Vous m'avez sauvé une fois, maintenant je suis venu pour vous sauver. La République sombre. Une petite fuite de plus en plus élargie. Moi même quand je suis arrivé ici, l'écoulement de la baignoire m'a englouti.

    Tu n'as aucune idée de la chance que tu as d'être français.

    Sometimes you just have to listen to a foreigner speak your language to be reminded of the beauty of it. The script really is beautiful, I have no idea…
