Linda Brownlee calls this short film “A portrait of a lady who loves to dance,” and that is 100% what we have here. In this touching episode in Linda’s Limber Notes series, we are invited into the home of Isabelle Matthews whose husband Douglas narrates this tender little short, talking about his wife’s incurable love for dancing.
As Isabelle dresses up in costumes and prances around in the house in some of the most touching and smile-inducing shots you’ll see all year we hear Douglas describe his ever-moving wife as “a piece of dynamite.” Beautiful. Limber Notes sees Linda journey into the homes of dance-lovers all over the country and film them dancing in their natural habitat at home. Check out episode one over here on Nowness.
