Sumptuous remastering of a technicolor classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Red Shoes [DVD] (Special Edition) (DVD)
Remastered, with the support and encouragement of eminent director Martin Scorsese, this is one of Powell and Pressburger's eternal classics. Filmed in technicolor by the talented Jack Cardiff and featuring the young and beautiful Moira Shearer as a rising star of the ballet world it is a study of obsession; in this case, how someone can be taken over by their desire to dance. Visually stunning, emotionally charged and hurtling full pelt towards its tragic conclusion this is truly a must-see film and one which its director, producers and stars should be eternally celebrated for. A major film achievement.
