This superb film is not only a wonderful dance film but also an art film of the best kind. Much of the art direction seems to be derived from movements in the development of modern art from the first half of the twentieth century. Though I have not seen the film in a while (only three times in all)I distinctly recall scenes reminiscent of the painter deChirico as well as perhaps the blue or mauve periods of Picasso. This film is a rare jewel.
The only other film I have seen that comes close is Carlos Sauras' El Amor Brujo.
