Erotic and haunting
24 November 2000 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful variation on Tchaikovsky's ballet with all male swans. The play has a wicked sense of humor about ballet and theater in general, but the homoerotic element is what really sets this version off from all others. These swans are not males doing traditional female ballet movements. The dances are choreographed for males and are powerfully appropriate for the masculine, barechested young men. Adam Cooper is stunning as both the white and black swans.

The final scene is so touching as to bring tears. This is a movie for people who don't like ballet as well as for those who do. The mystery and mystique of SWAN LAKE will never be the same again.
