Grazing the sky is an emotional portrait of the lives of gymnasts and acrobats who make the Cirque du Soleil such a treat to watch. It tells the stories of artists who want to perform in Cirque du Soleil, of which many do not have any previous experience in circus performance except for the passion they have for their art form. The film follows these people through the paths that they take in reaching the pinnacle of their art form while fighting personal tragedies, debilitating injuries and violent conflicts. As one of the trainers aptly puts forth in the film that they have to fight their "fear, pain and weariness" with their passion for the art form to achieve perfection.
However one wonders if the film maker instead of speaking to the artists, had allowed them to do what they do best i.e. speak through their bodies, this film could have turned out to be extremely entertaining. One just wishes that there could have been more of the spectacular sequences in the film instead of the long interviews.
