California bellydancer Cory Zamora heats up the screen with a live display of traditional, authentic cabaret bellydancing in this performance video that offers the traditional Middle Eastern music and the vocal talents of Mirage. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Nothing against Ms. Zamora, but this was really not worth renting/reserving. If you've ever seen any good performance videos, this certainly doesn't stack up. The film footage wasn't clear enough so that you could really see and appreciate Ms. Zamora's movements. The audience wasn't enthusiastic, which made me wonder if people were even interested. Watching a video in which the audience is only remotely interested doesn't make me feel interested. I'm sure Ms. Zamora has some wonderful talents... this DVD just didn't feature them very well.
Shot with a badly lit homevideo camera. Like watching someones badly done home movies. Sure shes got talent but an actual production DVD would have been so much nicer than almost candid in a resturant shots of her dancing. Plus the awful audience closeups. I ended up FFwd the whole thing then just gave up. Awful.
