a film about ballet that is as beautiful as ballet
31 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While ballet is an incredibly beautiful art, it usually loses a lot when put on film which is strange since both are visual media. However, Donya Feuer, the director, has really created a documentary that is as stunningly beautiful as ballet and strangely just as inexplicable. You kind of float along with the documentary enjoying it but not quite understanding where you are yet not minding it just because it's all so beautiful. The documentary at it's most basic level follows the life of a young ballerina in the Royal Swedish Ballet, Katje Bjorner, but it's really quite a lot more than that and in some ways a lot less. It's not in any way a story or some linear description of the life of a dancer. It just uses that theme as a way to make a beautiful, evocative film about one of the most beautiful and evocative art forms. It's really a documentary that anyone who has a love for the ballet should see.
