The original title is Une vie de ballets; the film is in French, but it doesn’t matter – most of the important stuff is the ballet sequences.

The film is centred around Pierre Lacotte (dancer, choreographer and living repertoire repository for romantic ballet) and Ghislaine Thesmar (ballerina, his wife and muse). The two chat about their lives, the choreographers and dancers they have worked with. Of course, there is footage of famous dancers and ballets.

Being a French, we see a more Euro-centric recent history of ballet.

This DVD/film is a must see for balletomanes.
