Marvelous movie, badly in need of remastering
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think there's much I can say that would do justice to the beauty of this movie. It is delightful for anyone who likes ballet, but especially for fans of Cyd Charisse and Moira Shearer

However, the video transfer on the Kino DVD is an absolute horror - it's badly transfered, and the print that was used in the transfer was in terrible condition, with plenty of scratches, and many instances of missing snippets of film.

One wishes the Criterion Collection could get the rights to movies like these, and make a first-rate video transfer that would truly do justice to their artistry.
