Madu: Review

Madu: Review

Madu: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

When you want to sit down and see a documentary on a child who attempts to chase his dreams to make for a brighter future, this is the one to see. It certainly has the same energy as the dancer that it’s trying to portray, with such fervor and ambition.

Anthony Madu is a passionate dancer who lives in Nigeria and is imbued with such abilities that it catches the attention of an exceptional ballet school located in England. While his family is worried about their son leaving for a foreign country, they are very supportive of his dream. 



It’s amazing to look at a film that Disney has put out that seems genuine and authentic in its execution. It seems like such a great entry into the Disney+ pantheon that tells a story that needs to be told. 

The film has some of the most excellent cinematography that I’ve seen in a documentary film. The camera moves and sways almost in a similar fashion that our subject does. The audience sees the world from Anthony’s eyes and it’s both beautiful and sad, as we see him dance, make friends and struggle with his vision. 

Madu’s struggle is evocative, emotional and inspiring. Seeing such a sincere film come from Disney’s library is a clear sign that the company still has the magic that seems to have been missing for a little while and taking risks in this studio with this film is exactly the win that it needed.

Overall, this film is a fiery and seasoned winner for Disney with the same passion that only a true dancer could achieve.
