I'm just not into the aesthetic enough to look past the preposterous plot. Really baffling 7-8 minute sequence of back to back to back "music video sequences" in a row. Obviously made to sell the soundtrack. Congrats, I guess? Also, it turns out Beals can't even dance? I feel cheated, lol.
OK. Let's face it, folks - If you actually took away Flashdance's "Giorgio Moroder"-driven soundtrack, as well as the impressive dance sequences where the uncredited Marine Jahan doubled for Jennifer Beals (who couldn't dance her way out of a wet, paper bag) - Then (Yes. Indeed) this dull-edged story about an 18-year-old welder-cum-dancer (Can you believe such a preposterous scenario as that?) would have been a major flop-eroo like no other,
Released in 1983 to great fanfare - Flashdance was produced on a relatively modest budget of just $7 million. Yet. In its first year, alone, it actually grossed over $200 million, worldwide, at the box-office.
And, speaking about anyone seriously thinking of taking up welding as a means of employment - Believe me - It's definitely one of those super-unhealthy trades where one is up close and inhaling all sorts of noxious fumes and gases, non-stop. Yep. Being a welder will fry your brain in not time flat.

A+ for Jennifer Beals!!!! It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. B movie!!!
So many classic scenes! A great love, and triumph story. More nudity than I had expected.
