Trivia

Martin Scorsese (who cameos), an acolyte of Michael Powell, originally convinced both Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson to star in the movie. The legendary pairing was vetoed by the Russian Ministry of Cinema, as De Niro's The Deer Hunter (1978) was seen as anti-Communist, and Nicholson had made disparaging remarks about the Soviet Union in interviews. Nicholson's role was eventually played by James Fox. See more »

Emotionally wonderful and thought-provoking!
25 February 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I am Russian and I have a great love for Ballet, both watching it and performing. I only watched this movie once, and now wish to see it again.

This documentary is, on my scale, as good as Burnt by the Sun! And that's the highest on my scale!
