Storyline

Jess, a struggling dancer, is trying out for a part in a musical about Medusa. As she practices, the director notices how much she resembles his former lover, a ballerina who died in a bizarre on-stage accident while performing the exact same dance that Jess is doing. As more unexplainable coincidences surround the production, someone or something must be behind them all. But who? Or what? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This could have been Miss van der Velde's star-turn
14 January 2006 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

"Shadow Dancing" is a merely forgotten thriller about a dancer who becomes the object of her director's obsession because she resembles his former (dead) lover.

A good choreography, some very good songs and the stunning photography (d.p. René Ohashi received a Genie nomination for his outstanding work) make this neat little film quite entertaining and highly watchable.

This was one of Nadine van der Velde's last films as an actress. The Canadian-born actress was close to become a 1980s superstar with her roles in "Critters" and "After Midnight", but the lack of starring roles and the lack of commercial success made her vanish into oblivion. She became an award-winning writer in the 1990s and now lives in her native Canada with her husband, actor Patrick Breen.
