I’ll be the first to admit, I am not a huge Cirque du Soleil fan, my 20 year old son is. We sat down to watch Cirque Du Soleil – Worlds Away together, and we were mesmerized. The premise of the movie is that Mia visits an old, run-down circus. She is intrigued by and attracted to The Aerialist. As he is performing, high above the crowd, their eyes meet, he is distracted and falls…into another world and she is sucked in with him. The rest of the movie they are searching for each other. Yes, I know that this sounds like a predictable storyline…but this is Cirque du Soleil and that makes this anything but predictable.
This “other world” that they have entered takes us through acts from all 7 Cirque shows currently playing in Las Vegas. It is like watching the best of each show from the comfort of your living room for only a fraction of the cost. We thoroughly enjoyed the movie and can’t wait to share it with the rest of the family. The visuals are absolutely stunning. My favorite scenes are the ones from “O”, the aquatic show from The Bellagio while Aaron’s favorites are from “Ka” at the MGM Grand.
Cirque Du Soleil – Worlds Away is rated PG for dramatic images and mild sensuality. Here is a peek behind the scenes of this amazing movie.
