Perfect if you are spending the evening with Frasier or Niles Crane
17 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Technically speaking, this is a reasonably well made animated short film from Canada. While it's not very traditional, I can respect the time and effort and artistry of this film. What it consists of are drawings and outlines of people performing ballet as it is set to classical music.

If Frasier or Niles Crane or Billy Elliot are coming by for the evening or if you really, really love ballet, then no doubt you will love this film and think it's amazing. If, on the other hand, you are not a lover of ballet, then it will probably be a major chore getting through the thing--and this is probably more so for kids or adults who have short attention spans. As for me, I guess I'm rather low-brow as I really disliked the film and couldn't wait for it to end. Sorry.
