The intense competition and discipline associated with the development of a Prima Ballerina in a top St.Petersburg Ballet School serves as the background and focus of this well acted romantic drama. The Beauty of the Dancers and their dancing contrasts with the rigors of the training regime. Some of the Dancers remain secondary if the Dancer wants to archive her maximum potential. The acting of the unknown actors and actresses to me, a Canadian viewer and fan of Russian cinema, left me in awe. It was probably the times, that Russian cinema has hitting rocket bottom, and nobody paid any attention to Russian cinema. So this so underrated Juwel of a Masterpeace movie went absolutely un-noticed. I'm one of the very few lucky people who came into possession of this movie, via a very special Russian Girlfriend of mine. Who was able to get me a VHS version with English subtitles. It's one of my most precious possessions now.
