Enjoyable
8 April 2004 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this film yesterday, and enjoyed it a great deal. I do agree with the other fellow's review that the main characters, Lisa and Tony, hadn't made a deeper connection yet in the viewer's mind when the big climax part came. Too little effort was placed on that part, with only small sections working on their budding friendship/romance. But, as a non-professional, the dancing bits were lovely. I enjoyed watching the walk-through rehearsals, getting an idea perhaps of how these ballets are placed together much like a play or television performance. I love Baryschnikov anyway, and Allesandra Ferri is so graceful and lovely as a dancer...it really was fun to see.
