In a scene showing a close up of Nureyev's foot performing a tendu, the shoe he is wearing is a white split sole ballet slipper, a shoe that did not exist in the 1960s. Split sole ballet technique shoes have only been on the dance scene since the mid 1990s. See more »
Beautiful, sensitive portrayal of the emotional development of young Rudolph Nureyev, whose defection to the West was made easier by the emotional hardship he endured as a child. Deeply moving portrayal of a young boy's discovery of a world where dance offered colour and release, and where battles were fought and won through sheer courage and determination. The White Crow is a gentler film to the frenzy of the brilliant Whiplash, but both movies have parallels, and those moments seen through the eyes of a delicate, sensitive and anguished little boy will stay with you for life. Abandoned to himself as a child, the beautiful ghost of his young self, dances in the shadows as a grown Nureyev is rescued by friends who love him, and propelled towards his future he has dreamed of.
