I've never seen one. Never thought I'd be bothered, either.
I expect Pina won't show in any cinema within a hundred miles of me, but if it does I'll aim to get to it. I know absolutely nothing about dance, modern or otherwise, and as a rule have little interest, but I've always made an exception for Pina Bausch, whose work I've always found simply extraordinary. She died last year, far too young, just when Wenders was about to begin filming Pina. Because of her death, he had to change his plan completely. This is the result, and I think it will be brilliant.
