Audience Reviews for Ballerina
Neither bleak, nor inspirational, individual or compromising, this documentary featuring the process of ballerinas in Russia is more educational than beautiful. The only times when the pure passion of the dance is exhibited, are clips from such ballets as Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake, and The Legend of Love. From the time of their first study at age ten, to the corps de ballet at Kirov, and finally realizing the dream of becoming a prima ballerina, every stage is catalouged for future reference. There is little emotion, but all the grace of a swan, or Juliet, or Carmen. Lovely.
Behind any great ballerina lies the discipline and rigour that comes from decades of training and practice....this film,. Bertrand Normand's portrait of five Russian ballerinas from the Mariinski Theatre,in Russia,is very nicely portrayed
A beautiful documentary about the work it takes to be a ballerina in Russia. It was very nicely put together to tell the whole story.
