La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet
PG| 2 hr. 39 min.
A documentary goes behind the scenes of Paris Opera ballets.
Director: Frederick Wiseman
This movie was tedious and poorly made. A home movie would have been better. The long repeated shots of hallways, skyline and the building, poorly paced film of dancers, etc, Unless you are really into the ballet, skip it.
This is an amazing film. You see incredible dance along with all the structure that supports it: the company's artistic director, choreographers, dancers, costume makers, kitchen folks and even a glimpse of the bee-keeper who does his work on top of the building. This film is a gem!!!
