If you are a very devoted fan of ballet you might appreciate seeing how professional dancers work when practicing.
Other than that, this movie is horrible. It is about two hours too long, the cuts are weird, lightning gloomy where no gloom is needed, no discussion, explanation, elaboration, investigation or anything else otherwise associated with documentaries.
If you love seeing shaky hand-held vistas of Paris rooftops you might like the footage, although I'm sure the tourist office of Paris has much better films for free.
I sat through the entire movie hoping for something to happen, some twist, conclusion, anything. Nothing. I left the theatre with an empty feeling, wishing I could have those long hours of my life back.
Oh, and dancing and cinema are two of my largest passions in life.
