About the Movie
Tegan and Sara "Get Along" is a collection of 3 films that gives a rare and intimate look into the lives of these two widely celebrated songwriters, performers, and musicians. The first film - STATES - is a 30-minute documentary that uses American touring footage and interviews with Tegan and Sara as a backdrop to illuminate their early career beginnings and their unique connection with their fanbase. The second film - INDIA - is a 25-minute documentary shot during Tegan and Sara's first-ever tour of India, using interview footage with Tegan, Sara, and a cast of family and friends to chronicle diverse reflections on road life. The third film - FOR THE MOST PART - is a special 1-hour and 10-minute stripped-down studio concert, shot with a live audience of 75 fans, friends, and family over two days in Vancouver, BC.
I can only say good things about this movie, the music, editing, and overall emotion is superb, their talent and hard work is reflected in a beautiful manner. It gave me chills to watch the acoustic performances. Much love Tegan and Sara.
The Most Intimate Look Into Tegan and Sara To Date
I am writing this review upon just finishing watching the credits roll. If you are even a moderate fan of Tegan and Sara, this 2 hr, 3 part documentary is well worth the investment.
There is high replay-ability in the separated chapters of the live show, so you can go back to individual songs, when you yearn for them. SuperClose (the production team) did an outstanding job of making the documentary as artful as the artists which it focused on.
I can honestly say, in many years of watching concerts, this was the most intimate, beautiful capturing I've ever witnessed. The synchronized harmony that the sisters produced, without the wired in electric sound they make on record, truly showed how beautifully they sing.
Standout moments include: standing in a soccer field, in BFE India, singing "On Directing" with nothing more than a guitar and a shaker, Sara's re-invented take on "Not With You", Tegan climbing a rooftop, to sing a very harmonious version of "Hell", and the overall impressiveness of lighting/camera work throughout the journey.
$12.99 for 2 hours of what I just mentioned above is a bargain. These girls are 2 of the most talented musicians in the industry today, and they just keep getting better. I can't wait for their new album, in 2012. I'll be watching/listening to this until then.
Everything I excepted.
For the moment I heard Tegan and Sara back when I was 15 (I'm 23 now), I couldn't find anything that would compare to the sound they have. They truly opened up my mind to music and how amazing it is. I have every album and I just bought this. I just finished watching it and I didn't except anything else from these two lovely women. They are both so talented and intelligent but so modest. I understand the "awkwardness" that Sara get around people because I get it too. The way she deals with it help me deal with it. I use laugher and questions with people to help me with it. I usually have nothing to say to people, I think that staying quiet is better than blabbering away even though I have things to say. When it comes to Tegan, she brings such a different sound to the band and I love it. To Tegan and Sara, your new album is just brilliant. I love you guys and I hope you keep making albums. Thank you.
