Movie Info

RESET depicts renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied as he attempts to rejuvenate the Paris Opera Ballet in his new position as director. With appearances by composer Nico Muhly, Opera alumna Aurélie Dupont, and designer Iris van Herpen, RESET is a delightfully aesthetic affair from filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai, a moving portrait of a landmark moment for one of the ballet's oldest institutions and one of its brightest new stars, both on the cusp of great transition.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9)

  • Even as a profile of a singular artist, though, this soft-focus documentary is missing an essential dimension -- a critical look at the intramural conflict and public controversy that flowed from its hero's reformist role.

  • Did the film make me want to see Mr. Millepied's ballet, "Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward," on the stage? Yes. And that's high praise.

  • It helps that, with co-director Teurlai serving as cinematographer, the filmmakers exhibit a refined and elegant eye for the kind of quiet loveliness that can be found in movement as well as stillness.

    Jan 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • As they recount "the story of a world premiere," filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai take the viewer from first steps to exultant gala performance - in essence, from the prosaic to the transcendent.

    Jan 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Espouses individual expression and athletic grace, while also pinpointing the limits of star power.
