Inspired By Bach presents Yo-Yo Ma in six artistic collaborations with Kabuki artist Tamasaburo Bando, garden designer Julie Moir Messervy, choreographer Mark Morris, and many others. These musical interpretations explore the passion and transformative power of J.S. Bach's Solo Cello Suites. "Falling Down Stairs" features Bach's "Suite No. 3 for Unaccompanied Cello." Although he knew the music well, Mark Morris had never thought to choreograph a dance based on Bach's "Third Suite." But through a close collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma, an astonishing dance emerges between musician, dancers and filmmaker Barbara Willis Sweete. "Sarabande" features Bach's "Suite No. 4 for Unaccompanied Cello." This dramatic film from director Atom Egoyan explores a number of relationships revealing the generosity of spirit and love that flow from Yo-Yo Ma's performance.

Been wanting to see this film for ages, and now that I can find dvd's "like new" in the used bin from Amazon sellers for a coupla bucks, I finally got it. For the $4 paid, I'm glad to have it :)
Not so fond of the dance piece but I suppose for people who like dance, it is interesting. My opinions of these particular dances wouldn't matter, I'm not a dance geek, so really have no basis to criticize from. :) But even for an ignoramus like me, there are some really nice parts to watch.
This is a must-have for fans of any element of this work, whether you're interested in Yo-Yo Ma, Lori Singer, Atom Egoyan, Mark Morris, Dance, Cello, Bach, Humans, etc :) Worth the cost and under-noticed.
