Enter The Faun (2015/First Run Features DVD)

Picture: C- Sound: C Extras: D Documentary: C+

Gregg is a young man with cerebral palsy, but through his choreographer he learns how to control and move his body and dance with grace. Cerebral palsy is movement disorder with lost of body control and seizures, but Gregg shows anything possible and that a person can overcome medical limitations and miracles are still possible ...even if science can't explain it.

In Tamar Rogoff's Enter The Faun (2015), Gregg was told by the doctors that he will one day need a wheel chair and never walk again. Now, he is able to dance with grace and jump like he is free. Through his dance and choreographer (the director of this release), he learns how to over come his pain, to let go and then reconnect with his body. While the cause of cerebral palsy said to neurological, the medical world has yet to find a true cause or cure, nor can they explain how Gregg regained his body motion.

This was like watching cerebral palsy can be cured by dance yoga and will power. For those who have to re-learn to use body function through therapy, drugs or some treatment know it's not a easy route. It is good to be motivated and to believe in yourself, but in the end the real miracle would be if they can repeat and teach this to others and help cure others who are like them ...then it would be a revolution. Wish this had been longer.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image (motion blur and detail issues) and lossy Dolby Digital mix (location audio) are both weaker and lighter than expected, unfortunately, so expect mixed performance. There are no extras.
