THE SKIN I LIVE IN (2011) dir. Pedro Almodovar

#
THE SKIN I LIVE IN is, more than anything, an Almodovar tribute to Almodovar. Utilizing his own colour schemes, offbeat interweaving narrative and shooting technique, THE SKIN I LIVE IN will easily become one of the main works by this long-standing Spanish director.   It tells the story of Robert Ledgard, portrayed by Antonio Banderas - on a much awaited return to the silver screen and in his native language - a brilliant plastic surgeon obsessed with creating a pain-resistant arti...

White Men Cant Dance

user
Director: Peter S. Vinal.
White Men Cant Dance Synopsis This film White Men Cant Dance is a family oriented story based on hope, inspiration, dancing, morals, dignity and ultimately God is brought into this film. A large part of this film is based on a true story. This film White Men Cant Dance is about a very close family that go through some very tough and emotional struggles. The story takes place in a little home with the husband, wife and precious little girl, which the father Pete works at a development company. His office is very comical, but yet, they all work together as a family. Pete is very close with his parents, but only has a mental relationship with his father. His dad is an inventor, a genius that everyone calls, Einstein 2. One day at the office Pete gets a call from the hospital, his dad is on the way to the hospital and his mother will meet him there. Immediately, Pete leaves the office right in the middle of a very significant investor meeting, which is crucial to the companys existence., But Pete needs to be at his dads side, torn, he leaves the meeting regardless of the reluctance of his boss. At the hospital his father dies in Petes arms waiting for a surgeon that never comes. (based on a true story) This devastates Pete and his family. Almost in a zombie state, the next day Pete goes to work at his job, trying to keep his mind busy and food on the table After his dads funeral Pete finds out that his precious little girl is dieing. She has to go on a waiting list, do to the lack of kidneys, not to mention the expense. After insurance, what little they have, Pete has to come up with $50,000 more to pay the hospital. They dont know what to do, after his dads death they were strapped, his dad had no life insurance of any kind. After a few days Pete is back to work, the guys in the office try to talk Pete into going out to a club just to change the scenery, make him forget for a few hours, with his wifes blessings, they take him out. They get to this club Rox and there we see this black guy dancing, Ice Man he is an incredible break dancer. The guys are freaking out over his abilities, but Pete wasnt impressed. Pete got up to go to the mens room and does a little move, Ice Man came up to Pete and said that he remembered him. He said he remembered how good he used to be, but now he is too old and fat, a pushing match started. During this shoving match Pete sees a banister saying, Dance Competition $40,000 first place. He tells Ice Man that he will see him at the competition. The guys break up the shoving match and are wondering what that was all about. After being escorted out by the bouncers, they take Pete home, wondering if they did the right thing taking him out. Pete thanks them, and tells them that this was the best thing that could ever of happened, it must have been Gods plan. At home Pete finds some of his old dance tapes of him and his partners, inspired, he calls his old dance buddies to ask them if they could help him get in shape one last time for the competition of his life? Of course to save his daughters life. They agree and the intense working out starts, (like when Sylvestor Stellone did in his movie when he went to Russia to work shop, preparing for the fight of his life) so Pete is now struggling to get back into shape. He would slip out at night to go work out with his dance partners. His wife was starting to wonder if he was having an affair. As a result, she gets her best friend involved as a scout for her to find out what is going on. Next day Pete walks into work finding out that he is fired. A fellow worker steals his invention saying pete was stealing it from him. So Pete is fired. Now, it is the night of the competition, Pete goes to his daughters room and kisses her on the forehead after tucking her in, praying to God, very emotional scene. He goes up stairs to the attic and opens an old door where his old dance shoes are hanging, all dusty. He pulls them out, brushes them off and goes out the door to the competition. Meantime, his wife freaking out, calls her best friend and says ok follow him now, on that pre-planned, non trust investigation. She follows him to the competition. At the competition all these dancers are stretching sizing up one another, trying to psyche each other out. We see the judges, two of the four judges are Ice Mans dance buddies, so we know which way this competition is going. The dance competition starts, after 30 minutes it is down to two competitors, Ice Man and Pete. They go back and forth, the crowd is slowly changing from their Iceman and start screaming for Pete. Then, in nervous retaliation, Icemans two dance partners come out on the dance floor and join in dancing. So, Petes dance partners, moon walk and slide out on the dance floor with him to make things even. But one of Petes dancers gives the DJ his own CD on the way out there. The DJ immediately puts it on. They all are going at it, it is incredible, very physical and intense, then the last move. Pete runs up Ice Mans back, doing a double flip down to a split on the floor waving out his arms to a stop. The crowd goes nuts. After a nervous and very quite five minutes, you could cut the air with a knife. The judges announce the winner, it is You will see it at the movie. The End See Trailer at www.whitemencantdance.com
