At 75 minutes it's too brisk and feels like a TV series edited down to the bare minimum, with questions left hanging.
Only in Norway could filmmakers make such an honest documentary about 14-year-old boys who dream of becoming top ballet dancers.
Shot over four years, this pleasant but not especially insightful Norwegian documentary tracks three teenage boys training at Norway's top ballet school.
The delicate bond that emerges between young boys under unusual pressure is the highlight of an otherwise fairly conventional doc.
A light documentary that captures the thrill of dance dramatics and the awkwardness of growing pains.
While the dancing depicted is often beautiful, this is more about the boys' friendship: a nostalgic insight into the kind of intense relationship that can occupy a teenager's world, but be all but forgotten in a few years' time.
In place of high drama and high jumps we are offered love and tenderness.
As a window on a world, Ballet Boys is solid. As dramatic exploration, it lacks attack.
A visually slick documentary, Ballet Boys takes steps toward being an insightful look at the lives of three young male ballet dancers, but unfortunately, it does not go far enough.
