This film , it can be said , is dedicated to artists all round the world. I saw this film in Russian language as I did not have the benefit of English sub-titles but in spite of that I fell in love with the film!!All the dancers who ever feel low can see this film and gain their confidence back.The movie shows that no matter whether she was tired or in pain , Anna Pavlova always danced and never disappointed her audiences. Her dedication to dance was unparalleled and those who want to take up dance as their career must start out only after watching this film.The music was haunting too. I wish Anna Pavlova was really the heroine of this film.
