Movie Reviews

As always, Amazing
Julie Sir | MN USA | 03/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Typical of cirque du soleil, this show contains performances that make your jaw gape. The opening act of four girls who contort and balance, with or without each other, is so incredible you can't not react. Next, a group of acrobats uses a see-saw to fling themselves four thousand feet in the air while doing six hundred twisting flips in a micro-second to land on human stacks, the other end of the see-saw, or anywhere else they want to land...and precisely. The next routine allows viewers some down-time while a girl floats east and west on a giant swing while winding her body through all shapes to the accompaniment of peaceful music. Next comes the guy who does stuff on a tightrope that cannot be done, while the elderly director provides comic relief as he tries to mimic, and mostly unsuccessfully, his moves. I will not go through all the acts, but I have to warn you about what happens to you after watching the oriental girls who use their feet to do tricks with umbrellas: the little section of flesh between your eyebrows will be sore if you do not try to unfurrow them some time during the act. With all this praise it may come as a surprise to know this is my least favorite cirque du soleil show. I have four of their videos and I rate this one five stars because it deserves it. It's just that Quidam deserves a hundred. The other shows fall somewhere in between. If this is your thing, you will not be disappointed with any of them and I strongly recommend you buy them all. Oh, and be ready to laugh. You'll be doing a lot of it."
It's good, but I have seen better

"This DVD was good, but compared to other Cirque shows like Quidam and Dralion it seems a bit rough. The DVD was very dark at times making the artists hard to see and the single spotlight in the back was distracting. If you are a Cirque collecter than this is for you, if you are a novice Cirque fan I recommend one of their later shows like Quidam or Dralion."

"After seeing the videos of 'Quidam' (unbelievable) and 'Saltimbanco' (good, but does not compare to 'Quidam'), I expected to be disappointed. Leave it to Cirque du Soleil to not allow my expected disappointment. 'Nouvelle Experience' seems to be an ancestor to 'Mystere' which I have seen twice and will see every time I visit Las Vegas. The high bar and trampoline and 'see-saw' acts can be found in 'Mystere' and are just as thrilling in this video from 1991. As always, the spellbinding music of Rene Dupre enhances the performances. The highlight, in my opinion, is the hilarious clown 'director' scene with audience participation. I had to pause the tape several times until I quit laughing. Cirque du Soleil, et al. IS the most incredible entertainment force on Earth!"
Very good Cirque

"This DVD has more acts to it than the Bravo TV special, and it's worth the purchase. Although some of the acts doesn't "wow" me like newer shows, they are better than "Cirque Reinvente", and the music is very nice. My favorite part is the "Film Scene" where one of the clowns acts out an old time movie with three audience members. Two complaints about the disc is that the video is dark at times, and the only extras are trailers for other Cirque DVDs. I wish there was a behind-the-scenes look, but there isn't."
