Congress Dances Directed by Erik Charell

Critics reviews

What Charell establish beyond question is a cinematic style which could be characterised as pageantry on the hoof. His camera is restless, and periodically his characters join it for spectacular romps through large sets and open scenery. If Charell had been able to continue his career on a smaller scale, everything would have been lost, since his is an approach that exults in huge, show-off sequences, insanely protracted shots with hundreds of extras singing, dancing, stomping on grapes.

This bubbly, adorable musical manages to blend politics and bedroom farce, a range matched by numbers that vary from thundering dance performances to love songs to beerhall sing-alongs.
