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 »

Very inspirational!
2 January 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In my childhood I watched this film in the cinema and was fascinated by the strong spirit of the legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova with her passion for complete dedication to the art of ballet.

The filming location of this film was at the Ivy House on North End Road, Golders Green, London where she lived for the rest of her life.

For a long time I had a dream to visit this place. And recently my dream came true when I visited her former home at the Ivy House to see the statue of Anna Pavlova sculpted in her honour in 2010 by Hampstead artist Tom Merrifield near the lake where she fed her swans like in the scene in this film!
