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.

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.

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

The title of this French animation will be catnip to a certain demographic - young, fond of a tutu, dreams of Swan Lake in their hearts.

The filmmakers take few false (or risky) steps... [Full review in Spanish]

Cheesy Euro ballerina-porn cartoon is full of dated animation, cringeworthy attempts at humor, bizarre anachronisms, and a terrible message for little kids.
