Excellent movie about growing up and facing self-doubt.
21 February 1999 | by (Newport Beach, Ca) – See all my reviews

This is a strong short film, showing the relationship between a very young ballet dancer and the great Impressionist artist Edgar Degas. How the young Marie learns through the artist, Degas, about life and dealing with her own self-doubt about her abilities at dance, and how Degas in turn learns about his own weaknesses and strengths from the young girl, with some excellent acting all around by both. Also, some great insights into the subtleties of an artist's thoughts about what makes for great Art, and the commitment and sacrifice involved, and how that commitment is similar to the young girl's discipline and commitment to use her talent at ballet dancing. No matter what other people think. Very well done.
