Critic Reviews for La Danse -- Le Ballet de l'Opera de Paris
La Danse is an example of cinema at its most musical, an awe-inspiring celebration of body, mind and movement.
What's missing is a sense of who the dancers are as people and it makes La Danse feel like it has missed some crucial steps.
It is an insider's look at the ballet, but one that only an insider will get the most out of.
La danse is as good a way as any to discover the extraordinary combination of control, strength, precision, beauty and art that goes into creating ballet.
Yes it's long, but like the seven ballet productions it follows, La Danse prizes meticulous, exhaustive and downright entrancing precision...Indeed, La Danse is a film that makes you profoundly grateful documentaries exist.
Audience Reviews for La Danse -- Le Ballet de l'Opera de Paris
Showed up in a very low key way on PBS without much of a word or wimper but I was quite happy to catch it even though the broadcast quality was poor. I'm afraid that I wouldn't likely be found at a performance of the Paris Opera but there is something intriguing about seeing the details of the company from a fly's point of view. The directors avoided dull interviewers and simply let those involved tell their story through their activities ranging from rehearsals to fundraisers, corporate affairs and even union meetings.
