The Making of La Cha Cha ... FAB-U-LOUS
Verified purchase
Just another day in the office, or so I thought, until Kevin Allen aka ‘Suntan Willie’ arrived to discuss “La Cha Cha” he asked me to do the choreography which was music to my ears.
Then he handed me the script and said “learn the lines your the Car Salesman”.
I thought lock-down had affected his brain. I’ve never acted in my life, this is madness, he must of had those “hotdogs for tea” again.
Anyway I did as requested learnt my lines off pat ready for the first day of filming. The big day arrived and I was ready.
“I was all over it like a rash”.
I heard the words, cameras rolling and action, my mind went blank, all the right words came out but not necessarily in the right order.
Luckily Kevin’s experienced directorship guided me through and finally eight hours later I heard those wonderful words, “mark it that’s a wrap”.
Whilst feeling very relieved, there was also a feeling of fulfillment having done something so completely different at this stage in my life.
Next came the Choreography, back in my comfort zone with Alyson by my side working with Ruby and Liam to create Libby and Solti’s Cha Cha was a dream. (Excuse the pun).
We also had great fun creating the dance for the finale scene. It certainly went out with a bang, by the end of the night It felt like we had taught the Cha Cha to Guy Fawkes.
Kevin Allen has been involved in many great projects over the years, he even inspired me to write my Autobiography “Ballroom Fever” which was published in June 2020.
Whilst we continue to enjoy the catalogue of Kevin’s previous works, I’m sure we all agree that “La Cha Cha” is very special, filmed in very difficult times against all the odds, congratulations Kevin and to everyone involved.
Finally I think the subtle reference to dance throughout the film brings another positive dimension to it, after all ...

Something a little different

I really enjoyed this! It might not be for everyone, but I find films that are made for everyone a bit boring to be honest. It's beautifully random with a nice alternative quirky vibe and with a good message at the centre. If you like boosh or offbeat stuff defo worth a watch. Liam Hourican brought me here after I saw him playing Jacob Rees mogg in Lolly Jone's burlesque, and I wasn't disappointed 😁 also I hope someone makes real life la cha cha so I can retire there.

Really thought from the clips that this was going to be a great Twin Town follow up but…..it was a massive rehash of the classic TT lines that everyone loves and quoted, cheesy Welsh arias sung around a camp fire and seems to be a vehicle to promote Andy Serkis’ 2 kids (who were ok in parts). Dougray Scott was cringeworthy and not a part on his original TT character. As someone who went to Uni in Swansea at the time of TT and actually studied it (can you believe it??) I was looking forward to this but….maybe a follow up featuring the Lewis twins coming back from Morocco may have been a better angle.

So atmospheric
Verified purchase
I loved this film
It's a sort of anarchist paradise,
outside the law.
A very recognisable place.
The echo of government crumbling can almost be heard in the distance.
But have no fear, it is human nature to get along,
trust in life

The film is a travesty in the shadow of the former brilliant "Twin Towns".

While attempting to introduce some home spun Welsh ness, it pursues some disconnected story line. Lost the opportunity of showing some iconic scenery of the Gower peninsular despite the it being filmed on the Gower. Showing the worn out WII Fairwood airfield hardly provided this missing aspect of the film.
The cameo of including some well know rugby players presumably to boost viewing attendance did not work.
While Sosban Fach is a very catchy tune, it was overdone as an attempt to up the Welshness.

I loved this film! To be watched with a sense of humour, I think Kevin Allen bravely approached this film, pulling together a great cast of know and unknowns, it was really nice to see some emerging young talent. Shot on a shoe string budget, with iphones, the anamorphic lenses gave it a super wide screen look.
Highly recommend watching this.

Sad to say that in my opinion it fell very short of the excellent Twin Town despite a great cast and some witty scenes, for some reason I was taken back to The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour, which is now a regarded as a bit of a ground breaker which can't be a bad thing, maybe I need to watch La Cha Cha again?
