Haunting exploration of life's ghosts
6 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful and sadly not very well known movie. I first saw this film 20 years ago and loved it, then again just as much watching it more recently. Pascale Ogier and Leonie Mellinger play two young women who actually represent two contrasting sides of the same character. The movie's exploration of the way we are influenced by 'ghosts' from the past is made more poignant since the tragic early death of beautiful Pascale Ogier, only a year after Ghost Dance was made (The DVD has an interesting interview with Leonie Mellinger who shares her thoughts on this and other aspects of the movie).

Ken McMullen directs in an art-house style that is grainy and down at heel in London and Paris. The experimental soundtrack also adds to the striking visuals. This is one that can be watched again and again, opening up new meaning with each viewing. Thought provoking and hauntingly surreal.
