Movie Info

Paris, 1884. A orphaned girl arrives in Paris from Brittany. Félicie Milliner is 11 and has no money but one big, passionate dream: to become a dancer. With nothing left to lose, Félicie takes a big risk: she 'borrows' a spoiled brats identity and enters the Opera Ballet School. But how long can she be someone else? Mentored by the tough and mysterious cleaner, Odette , Félicie learns that talent is not enough - it takes hard work to be better than her ruthless, conniving fellow students. That and friendship. Felicie's inventive, exhausting and charismatic best friend Victor also has a dream: becoming a famous inventor. Together, they both encourage each other to reach for the stars.

Even if it never quite takes the risks implied by its exclamatory title ... "Leap!" follows the established steps with general grace and good humor.

At one point, Félicie's ballet teacher tells her that she has "the energy of a bullet" but no technique or focus; the same is true of Ballerina itself.

There's plenty of visual whimsy in the late-19th-century setting - the animators render a gorgeous Paris - while enthusiastic dance sequences and comic beats balance out melodrama.

[Ballerina offers] some interesting and thoroughly entertaining observations about what it takes to achieve your dreams.

With its over-familiar story and missed opportunities -- it settles for cute when it could be charming -- Ballerina is too clunky and unco-ordinated to be a classic, but young dance fans may still be inspired.

Perfectly animated leaps and bounds can only provide so much distraction.
