This is a film made by Peter Elfelt, the Danish royal photographer who, for many years, embodied the Danish film industry, producing over 200 films in an incredibly prolific career. This film was apparently shot in Elfelt's studio to ensure adequate lighting, which is why space is a little tight for the grinning duo prancing around the screen. The fact is if you're not into ballet you're not going to like this film. Even at little more than 75 seconds long it seemed to drag, so you can tell where my tastes lie. Despite this, the mere fact of the film's existence after more than a century is an incalculably good thing, and it is a real tragedy that for each of these films that still exist today another dozen or more have been lost forever.
