Product Description

Slavik Kryklyvyy, a once legendary World Latin American Dance Champion, has been out of the spotlight for ten years but is determined, with the help of a new partner, to recapture his former glory. Slavik is a temperamental and wildly talented perfectionist, taken out of the spotlight by a hip injury, and he is willing to sacrifice everything to get back to the top. He expects nothing but the best from his amateur world champion girlfriend, Anna Melnikova, and his temper flares when she fails to live up to his high standards. The couple dance around the world, clinging on to their relationship as the pressure mounts and waging a battle against memory, anxiety, injury and envy along the way. Looking at the glamorous world of ballroom dancing contrasted with the brutal and tough discipline which hides beneath the glittery surface, 'Ballroom dancer' watches the tragic love story unfold between Slavik and Anna. It's a universal story of a man, who allows himself to be defined by his art and tragically realises the consequences of his uncompromising choices in life.

This is a documentary type story (without the commentary) of a very intense dancer and his goals and ambitions at any cost. Aimed in my view at those of us who have spent time in the competitive dance world (although most of us don't reach the dizzy heights of world ranked dancers), as it helps to have an understanding of the sport. You feel for both Slavik and his partner at different times in the film - sometimes not an easy watch but a great insight into the complex, subjective world that is dance sport..

I saw their last rumba on UTube (you know the one). In the event the material doesn't contain much dancing and doesn't reflect the undoubted genius of these two dancers.
It was a drab ponderous account of a relationship breaking down with the partnership breaking down irrecoverably and the two principal characters going their separate ways.

An excellent portrayal of the demise that can come from human driven ego. Excellent performances by Slavik and his partner Anna. A reminder for us all the slippery slope we can inadvertently find ourselves on.

A real insight into the hard world of dance. A study of human struggle, obsession, dedication and sheer hard work.
