Watching Pina is like being inside one of Bausch's surreal pieces.
Jordan Levin, Miami Herald  full review
A remarkable -- and likely enduring -- tribute to an artist committed to creating dance theater drawn from humanity's deepest physical and emotional reserves.
Caroline Palmer, Minneapolis Star Tribune  full review
For anyone with an interest in dance, "Pina" is a must-see. For anyone not interested in contemporary dance, "Pina" is a should-see. It could change your mind.
Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic  full review
Pina is a tribute of an artist by an artist, a friend to a friend. But its great genius comes from the mournful, as well as celebratory, reckoning of the performers Bausch pushed, collaborated with and inspired.
Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post  full review
What might seem like a convenient bid for publicity - the first 3-D art-house film! - turns out to be the only logical way to showcase the action.
Stephanie Merry, Washington Post  full review
This meditation on movement and space, transportation and transcendence is not to be missed.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
What the filmmaker has created is an inspired simulacrum - a jewel-box that contains more of Bausch's kinetic soul than film has any right to.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe  full review
Crane and steadycam allow Wenders to get so close to the action that in the minimalist Cafe Muller, one's illusion of being on stage is uncanny.
Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader  full review
"Pina"is the best possible tribute to Bausch, and to adventurous image-making.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune  full review
I watched the film in a sort of reverie.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
Whether you're familiar with Pina Bausch's work or not, the new film "Pina" is a knockout.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times  full review
So this is what 3-D is capable of when used for art rather than the commerce of hiking ticket prices and repurposing cartoons!
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly  full review
Pina is, in every way, a moving experience.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine  full review
It should appeal to dance mavens, and to folks who have no idea what a pas de deux is.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post  full review
The power and intelligence of Bausch's approach, which at times seems more cerebral than sensual, is communicated.
A.O. Scott, New York Times  full review
An intimate and ravishingly filmed tribute to German dancer Pina Bausch.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
