Descriere: Acest film nu are subtitrare in limba romana.

This DVD includes three works: A piano version of the ballet with a solo dancer (Giovanni Di Palma) dancing to piano accompaniment and also while watching a video (which features a variety of people, mainly Kiyoko Kimura); an orchestral version of the ballet with the entire Leipzig Ballet, featuring Kiyoko Kimura; and a documentary on the life and untimely death of Uwe Scholz.

The piano version is completely different from the orchestral version. There is no resemblance whatsoever. Both versions are very emotional and somewhat autobiographical (even though Uwe Scholz tries to avoid plots to his ballets). Scholz likes to rely mainly on classical ballet technique, but the inclusion of modernisms is unavoidable in many of his ballets, including the orchestral version presented here (and, to a lesser extent, with the piano version).

The documentary is a very moving, in depth look at his life and work. It includes many narrations by Uwe Scholz himself, excerpts of his ballets, rehearsals, interviews with his family, and scenes of his funeral. It is eery because it appears to be seamless in its transitions from his life to his death and it is almost as if Scholz was explaining to us why he is going to die! He actually does explain a bit about his health problems.

There are also some interviews with some of his ballerinas and danseurs after his death and they tell us some of their impressions of their work and friendship with him. This is a highly recommended documentary for devotees of modern ballet!
