Disappointing
28 July 2008 | by fred3fSee all my reviews

Having read the rave review posted here I was expecting something interesting. Unfortunately, it was not to be. The acting was wooden the plot was boring and the dialog was trite: One of the better lines is, "So you just want to display your power and cast me aside." Despite pretensions to art, the "art" was simply a set up to display nudity. Extremely unrealistic: no dance coach acts this way. Yes, they can be very tough, degrading and demanding but not by saying a girl is too lazy for anything but being a whore, ripping off her blouse to display her breasts and then firing her in the next breath - all while the company is on stage - or grabbing a dancer in the crotch in order to tell her she needs more passion - again while the company is on stage. This might have been funny in a parody sort of way, but the delivery is so wooden that it just seems ridiculous and boring. The passion in the title was nowhere in evidence. It seemed as if the actors where there to collect a check and get out. The most passionate moment was when two girls were eating oysters together, but I think they were just hungry.

I was going to give this a 2 out of kindness, but after writing this review I realized I would only be creating false hopes in a potential viewer, so I gave it the 1 it actually deserves. Whatever it is you want from a soft core movie, you can find it better and in greater quantity - somewhere else.
