In today’s edition of the Frank Awards, I give you the most physical of them all, the awards for those who choreograph the movements in action and dance sequences in movies that were released originally in 2013. Let’s see what happens.
Best Choreography, Action:
Last year the winner was the incredible Marvel movie ‘The Avengers’ (2012) for its wonderful work of fighting and framing the attack and defense.
The nominees this year in both categories shall be presented in form of video, as it should for this kind of categories, that should be enough write up.
· Di Renjie: Shen du long wang
· The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
· The World’s End
· Xi You Xiang Mo Pian
· Yi dai zong shi
And the winner obviously is:
‘Yi zai dong shi’ managed to bring a beauty and a spectacular sense of space in every fight scene, it’s glorious.
Best Choreography, Dance:
Last year the winner was the choreography of the dances in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ (2012), making the only worthwhile scene in the movie highly watchable.
The nominees this year, just like with the action choreography, with images and videos.
· Los amantes pasajeros
· The Great Gatsby
· It Felt Like Love
· The Look of Love
· Sao Karaoke
This movie has a dance sequence at the end that is maybe the most breathtaking dance scene that I’ve seen so far, because it means so much to the moment of the film in which it appears. The scene is unattainable right now, of course.
And the winner is:
Sadly, this time you’ll have to take my word for it, because ‘Sao Karaoke’ had the best dance choreography of all year. Bright colours mixed with the nice movements of the main girl make it one of the most incredible scenes.
Tomorrow: The Music of the Heart.
