Narration of the life of miserable Polish dancer Vaslav Nijinsky from his collected letters
27 April 2002 | by (France) – See all my reviews

With a brilliant image perception, Cox narrates the biography of a miserable Polish dancer from his letters. The cinematographic expression is similar with Greenaway and Tarkovsky. A magnificent example of film as an art.
