Not sure why this film has gotten such low ratings. It's about the dancing not the acting. They used prima ballerinas and of course the incomparable Baryshnikov. The ballet company is making a film version of Giselle and the characters in their off-stage lives are mirroring the story of Giselle. Baryshnikov is the the playboy going through women with the same charm and lines. Frankly, you could fast-forward through the dialog and just skip to the dance sequences. They are incredible. The camera work on the dancing is admirable. Long shots so you can see the dancers' entire bodies, see how Baryshnikov can leap across it with ease. I loved the movie. If you don't like ballet, just skip this one, but if you do--you will love it.
