Black Swan Etoile.
23 January 2011 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Connelly plays Claire Hamilton,a ballerina who comes to Budapest to pursue her ballet career.Claire goes to the audition and back at her hotel receives black flowers addressed to long dead ballerina Natalie Horvath.She is possessed by the ghost of a 19th century prima-ballerina who was killed in a tragic carriage accident."Etoile" shares some glaring similarities with Darren Aronofsky's recent hit "Black Swan" for example the theme of loss identity.Like "The Spider Labirynth" it was shot in Budapest.The action is slow and the film is highly contemplative and subtle.It's certainly fascinating to compare it with "Black Swan".So if you are a fan of romantic horror you can't go wrong with "Etoile".7 swans out of 10.
