Dancers is in my top 10 all-time favorite movies watched
9 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Every time I watch "Dancers," I'm on a high for days. This movie is a delight to watch from beginning to end. You don't even mind watching the credits as they are being underscored by highlights of Baryshnikov's dancing. The props and scenery are superb, and it certainly is an extra bonus when the dancers and supporting characters are very attractive. While the dialog may be fluffy at times, it accents the ballet's story line nicely and is a perfect match to the overall mood of the movie. Dancers is easily in the all-time favorite top 10 movies I have ever watched, and I hope it will be released on DVD soon.
