Bonke and Keofoed have crafted a compelling portrait that asks questions about the nature and inherent dangers of competition, ambition, sacrifice and commitment both on and off the dance floor.

It's about trying to act with grace under pressure, about experiencing the acrid taste of failure and knowing you'll never again be visited by that heady adrenaline rush of success.

As we witness the rehearsals, the recriminations and the disintegration of their relationship we gain a real sense of the high personal cost for those in pursuit of perfection.

It is totally riveting, like watching Torvill and Dean do Strindberg.

[Struggles] to find much else of interest in the daily grind of rehearsals, costume fittings and plain rice and tap water dinners.

Anybody hoping for glamour will be disappointed: this is an icily dispassionate portrait of grinding routine in the pursuit of perfectionism.

More gripping than a Michael Vaughan foxtrot, this is the perfect docu-thriller for the Strictly aficionado.
