4.0 out of 5 stars Great dancers, but weak ballet, 4 Jan 2011
Saw the pair dancing Don Quixote last year, it was the most exciting ballet I'd ever seen, they were flying.
The ballet Les Flammes de Paris itself is a bit weak in many aspects: storylines, music and choreography, but the two fantastic pricipals save the show.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, not so great, 30 Dec 2010
So many good comments on this documentary, but as a classical ballet fan I don't quite agree.
Why only one out of five stars? The classical ballet dancing is only about 1/5 of the whole film. The contemporary pieces fill the most of it, among them only one piece is worth of watching, which is sort of like street dancing, the rest are all dark, self expressing and psycho path like. One piece is especially disturbing: pouring blood over two young kids and putting the blood-tainted buckets on their head, people might think this is child abuse.
Except the part of classical ballet dancing, the whole film is dim and boring. Since it is so much cheaper now, it is still worth of buying for the sake of the classical pieces in there.
