this is one of the most memorable films I have ever seen, it is a dance film with all the elements of art that make a film impossible to forget. The ballerina who plays the lead, Ludmila Tcherina, is at the top of her form in her performance as both dramatic actress and dancer. The french culture, its art and its language, create a world that is breathtaking and moving, a backdrop for the most incredible story of tragic love. This film was recommended to me by my distinguished dance teacher who proclaimed it as his favorite dance film. I agree completely and only wish the film were still available in the U.S.
