Trivia

Originally conceive and filmed as a 5-hour miniseries, Paramount ultimately decided that they wanted a two hour film. Thelma Schoonmaker (famed editor and wife of Michael Powell) managed to salvage a 160 minute theatrical version. Paramount, however, ultimately cut the film down further to its 133 minute state. After a terrible post-production session, including a poor dubbing and syncing of the English version, the compromised version was released with the Loteanu credit. Producer Frixos Constantine called it "artistically a disaster". 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!
