Documentary
If you’re interested in the personalities that shaped 20th-century ballet in Europe, you don’t want to miss Ballets Russes, which tells the strange tale of the second French company known as “Ballet Russe,” how it proceeded from the first, and how it made stars of unknown young women (girls, really) by pairing them up with the finest choreographers of the day. If you’re not at all interested in this story, then Ballets Russes will seem like one of those PBS documentaries about the migration patterns of an extinct species of butterfly. It’s a very straightforward, information-rich film, with lots of stock footage of dance and interviews with the surviving ballerinas. In short: It’s the perfect movie for ballet nerds, and probably not so good for the monster-truck fan.
