Beautiful ballet. - The Red Shoes review by JD

Spoiler Alert
02/02/2010

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.
