Product Description

Galina Belyayeva and James Fox star in this exquisitely beautiful film biography of the legendary prima ballerina Anna Pavlova. This special Western version of the epic Anglo-Russian production was written and directed by Michael Powell (The Red Shoes, The Tales of Hoffmann). From her humble childhood in pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg, Anna Pavlova (Galina Belyayeva) dreamed of nothing but the ballet. Rising to stardom through the Imperial Ballet and the Ballets Russes of Sergei Diaghilev (Vsevolod Larionov), she became the toast of the Russian court and then all of Europe s aristocracy. But Pavlova dreamed of still more. Aided by her childhood friend Mikhail (Sergey Shakurov) and her husband and Impresario Victor D Andre (James Fox), she would raise ballet to new heights, explore new methods of dance and take the beauty of her art to the furthest corners of the world.... With breath-taking cinematography from locations around the world, Pavolva: A Woman For All Time also features some of the finest ballet sequences ever filmed as performed by soloists from The State Academy of Theatre, Opera and Ballet and the Kirov and Bolshoi Ballet.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I bought this dvd after reading how ' beautiful' it was. What a disappointment. This has got to be the WORSE film on ballet I have ever seen. The acting and filming is utter crap and the dialogues are SO kitsch,as is the incidental music; it's a joke ! Ballet lovers beaware do not buy this dvd you will be cringing in the wings !
