Sweet Charity

Sweet Charity is a strange movie. Directed by legendary choreographer and dancer Bob Fosse, it's a mix of drama, musical, and really bizarre dance scenes. What makes it particularly strange is that the drama part is a remake of Fellini's Nights of Cabiria. As a serious drama, it's a joke compared to the original - Shirley MacLaine is not remotely in the same league as Giulietta Masina. However - as a series of dance scenes it is an absolutely stunning piece of art.
