4.0 out of 5 stars Dance Magic, 13 Sep 2003
This review is from: White Nights [VHS] [1985] (VHS Tape)
I'm a big fan of dance films, and 'White Nights' is one of the best around. Helen Mirren turns in an excellent performance as the faded and damaged ex-primo Russian ballerina, ultimately jealous of Barishnikov's freedom. Gregory Hines is superlative as the dissolutioned American tap-dancer. Isabella Rossolini is charming as his Russian wife. The moments of pure brilliance are of course the dance scenes, set off beautifully against the sinister KGB dominated backdrop of Moscow, as Hines and Barishnokov fuse their two distinct styles to produce some truly fantastic sequences. The film is supported by a decent soundtrack with the likes of Lionel Richie's haunting 'Say you, say me'. It is certainly well worth a watch, even if you are not a dance fan.
