Critic Reviews for Ballet Boys

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

  • Shot over four years, this pleasant but not especially insightful Norwegian documentary tracks three teenage boys training at Norway's top ballet school.

  • 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.

    Sep 15, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The delicate bond that emerges between young boys under unusual pressure is the highlight of an otherwise fairly conventional doc.

    Sep 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A light documentary that captures the thrill of dance dramatics and the awkwardness of growing pains.

    Sep 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
