"I have all the Cirque du Soleil DVD's.
This is the first Cirque du Soleil DVD that disappointed me. I mailed a letter expressing my disappointment to Cirque du Soleil's headquarters in Montreal.
Wait for the Zumanity DVD to come out. This DVD chronicles only a handful of the performers. Joey the drag queen emcee from NYC, the British ballet dancer (she was too boring to remember her name), a strong man from Miami and two other lackluster women. The strongman's best attributes are his muscles and girlfriend.
As long as they are not hurting anyone, I do not care about the people behind the scenes.
Zumanity is a great, controversial show. This DVD does not do justice to Zumanity. It provides just a blink of an eye view of Zumanity through a keyhole.
The material on this DVD is more suited as "Bonus Features" on the real Zumanity DVD.
Cirque du Soleil never offered a DVD like this before. What inane logic made them release this DVD? With any luck, they will never release another DVD like this again."
LOVESICK is not suppposed to show ZUMANITY

"It is amazing how many people get locked into a narrow view of what 'Cirque' is 'supposed' to be. Lovesick is a great documentary showing the trials and tribulations that take place before the whimsical world of Cirque becomes just that for the audience. I'm glad they chose not to show the actual performance. This DVD is not the show, and never should be classified as such. A must for anyone interested in the darker nature of pre-production."
Interesting life of Cirque

"I thoroughly enjoyed this backstage tour, so to speak, however it left me wanting to see more of the show. I guess they want you to buy tickets! There were too many repeat shots, however, the edting made for an intersting programme. If you saw Fire Within, the making of Varekai you;ll enjoy this.Cirque du Soleil - Fire Within / Varekai"
