Flesh and Bone

Critics Consensus

Its nuanced female relationships makes Flesh and Bone a realistic portrayal of a professional ballet company, though it suffers from a lack of levity.

Audience Reviews for Flesh and Bone: Season 1

  • Dec 20, 2020
    It's a heavy series, but so well done. Acting and dancing all perfect.
  • Dec 12, 2020
    Flesh and bone is probably the only ballet serie that "coregraphly" it's EXCELLENT, but the lake of coherence in their character's personalities and general trama jeopardise what the legitimate behind the scenes of ballet really is.

    I was excited after the 1st episode. After that it was downhill. The heroine should have had way more backbone, grit, toughness and survival skills. She didn't. In the 1st episode we learn that Claire had a disturbing past with an abusive brother who was way too much into her. I thought, great! That would have, should have been the crucible which formed a very tough, self reliant fighter... somebody who could deal with her art director at the American ballet company who was a narcissist, and extremely abusive person towards his dancers.What we get here is an oldy moldy hackneyed theme of women being used and abused. She was easily manipulated and it was just plain nauseatingly. You could tell it was directed by men.

    I feel like I wasted my time with this show. I thought it was going to get better. Maybe even be an allegory for sexual assault or the rich versus the poor but it didn't make it's point. It was gross and disgusting her falling in love with her brother. There are better ways to portray something and this just fell flat.

    Bizarre, dark, and basic. Good dancing
  • Aug 07, 2017
    I keep watching this for the ballet sequences and the dance story but the narrative of ths series constantly diverges into melodramatic soap and gratuitous sex scenes. This show is so badly written I was dumbfounded to discover the same person wrote the Ozymandias epiosde of Breaking Bad.

    Love it! Ballet 5 stars
  • Jun 26, 2016
    Elegant, mysterious, well acted and brilliantly danced.
  • Jan 18, 2016
    This slickly-made mini series has beautiful actors, excellent photography, fine direction, and some nicely staged ballet. But the soap opera storyline is preposterous and to call this "a realistic portrayal of a professional ballet company" is ignorant and insulting to the ballet world.

    It's Awesome - if you like ballet in anyway you will like Flesh and Bone
