If you like slow dance - you will love the movie
11 February 2009 | by e_nugoSee all my reviews

I found the movie to slow for my taste. But I should admit that this movie is an interesting movie. With a fort and back story line, little dialogs, and beautiful dance, the movie is worth to watch.

It has some memorable scene and dialog and I still have it in my mind for some time, which indicates that the movie was able to bring a lot of my attention.

There is another movie in the same genre entitled Billy Elliot, and in my opinion Billy Elliot provide much more interesting storyline and ending. But some aspects in the movie are totally different so we can not really compare the two of them.

Anyway, the movie is worth to watch. If you like a slow dance, you will love this movie.
