Exquisite dancing captured on film
7 June 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This evening on tv I was fortunate to have my first viewing of the acclaimed 1973 ballet film, Don Quixote, and was completely enthralled. Usually I considered most ballets as rather monotonous gymnastics carried along by the music, but this one was definitely something far superior. Nureyev's lighthearted rendering of the Don Quixote tale was charming and quite funny at times, a nice departure from his more serious roles. There are not enough superlatives to describe the excellent dance sequences, you really have to see it for yourself. Robert Helpmann showed much insight into his role as the elderly Don, and gains our sympathy and compassion throughout. Humor abounds. Outstanding and very well done!
