This Powell and Pressburger classic is widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made. Vicky Page, a young ballerina, becomes torn between her love for composer Julian Craster and artistic devotion to her profession, which is dominated by impresario Lermontov.
In Benjamin Button there is some good ballet, in this the ballet is sublime. The cinematography is fantastic, each shot a crystal clear work of art. However I didn't expect quite so much ballet and the acting is a bit theatrical. Beautiful rather than compelling.
