The film musical refers to movies that include singing and/or dancing as an important element and also involves the performance of song and/or dance by the main characters. Classical musicals depict a utopian integration of mental and physical life, of mind and body, where intangible feeling is given form as concrete yet gracious physical action. Whether the characters in musical movies are feeling up or down, whether they are alone or in public, they are always able to fulfill their desire or to feel better by dancing or singing.
