I loved it!!! It was a very beautiful program.

YAY!!! Beautiful and poignant.
I hope that some of the emotion wouldn't be lost for somebody who does not know the movie- because the image and story that David and Jeremy created is tightly connected to "La Vita e Bella".
I love that there is... looking for words.. so much air and light in the program. Every element is lovingly painted.

dinakt, I'd "rep" you, if I could!
I think it's genius but that's JMO of course, and that's coming from someone who doesn't normally like Wilson's work, but Jeremy does seem to bring out the best in him, or maybe it's Jeremy who has the facility to bring Wilson's true imagination to life, rather than generic face stroking paste on programs that most of his devotees end up with.
The glorious edge work alone is enough to have me all season over this program. LOVE the skid spiral and all the really angular and counter revolution choreography he does in and out of jumps.
Daisuke is wonderful too and obviously has the high impact performance level and he needs it because there's no doubt in my mind that Jeremy has infinitely the better program. That kind of 'oversell' would ruin the thematic nature and choreography of Abbott's program IMO.
Definite yay from me! This is truly my favorite Abbott LP thus far.

It gets a YAY from me!!!
Not only does it suit him wonderfully, but there's a move in it that I was starting to think I'd never ever see again in an eligible program. A skid spiral!!! It's also been put in a perfect place to go along w/the music as well.
Love it, love it love it and can't wait to see it get even better as the season goes along.
To compare, Kwan's Red Violin was one of my favorite programs - I felt what she was portraying and expressing, but I have never seen the movie. Don't need to.
I love it! Especially the transitions.
I haven't seen the movie, but I love this program. The choreography and movement capture the feeling of the music perfectly! I think subtle is underrated. Not everyone program has to be over the top, extroverted...
I don't know why it's so hard to accept that Abbott and Takahashi are different skaters, and some prefer Abbott's style while others favor Takahashi's (the best fans, of course, love both ).
I hate programs where the skater puts their hands in their pockets.
This is a gorgeous program for Jeremy. It suits him / he suits it ... just perfectly. There are very many beautiful and unique details that make it worth watching and re-watching and re-watching ( Amen to the skid spiral..).
Love the program. Love his skating. Wish I could feel as good about his SP.
I love the program. I find it charming and moving in a subtle way. It's my favorite program that I've seen this season.
I disagree that the program needs "pizazz". I don't think every program needs to be showy. I enjoy showy skaters (and love Takahashi), but I think there's room for subtle skating as well.
I haven't seen the movie, have always kind of wanted to see it, but NOW I really want to see it! I liked the program that much!

I think it's beautiful and can't wait to see it develope throughout the season!
I love this program. At the end of the program I was like what? it's been 4.5 minutes already?? It gave me the same feelings I got when I first saw Dubreil/Lauzon's "somewhere in time" program...subtle and romantic...I think with more mileage it can become a really great program. Just my opinions
