5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and moving tribute 15 Feb 2009
Rudolf Nureyev was one of the greatest dancers who ever lived and this documentary is a fitting tribute. It came out soon after he died and tells and shows you everything you need to know. It's an amazing story , informative, entertaining, beautiful and deeply moving as he struggled in his final years with the scourge of AIDS. There is just one moment of gush where a ballet queen insists thart even the straightest of men fell in love with him - this comment is OTT and draws snorts of disbelief from straight men I know, but apasrt from that this is a wonderful documentary with very pleasing archive footage and wonderful dancing and music

5.0 out of 5 stars A Moving Tribute. 30 Aug 2013
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
This powerful tribute captures some, but not all, of the painful complexity of the great dancer's final years. Following his diagnosis with Aids Nureyev continued to work until the dreadful disease killed him. His fierce determination to dance on, irrespective of his increasing physical deterioration, is both moving and inspiring and demonstrates clearly his passion for dance, at the most profound level, as well as his lust for life.

1.0 out of 5 stars LOW ON CONTENT - MAINLY INTERVIEWS 15 Dec 2010
I was disappointed with this DVD, because considering the subject 'NUREYEV', I expected at the very least to see some dancing, even if it was from the time when he was dying of AIDS and very weak. But this was mainly one interview after another, with virtually no supporting archive video coverage. They could have easily given the interviews as voice-overs over footage of his life. Then it would have been interesting. This one is food for the ears, but not for the eyes.
