Thanks to some glorious reviews of La Danse, there are sure to be some full houses this weekend. I recommend getting your tickets now! La Danse plays Northwest Film Forum December 4-10 at 7pm daily.
“Four stars: captures the fleeting beauty of ballet in dozens of miniature portraits, each quietly soaring…It’s magical.” -Seattle Times
“The documentary is a pleasure to watch because the dancers, even when practicing, when repeating moves and gestures, never lose that aura of body-magic.” -The Stranger
“SW Pick: Magnificent…shot in deeply satisfying long takes of gorgeous young men and women starting, stopping, listening, questioning, repeating, perfecting.” -Seattle Weekly
“To say that the film, sumptuous in its length and graceful in its rhythm, is a feast for ballet lovers is to state the obvious and also sell Mr. Wiseman’s achievement a bit short. Yes, this is one of the finest dance films ever made, but there’s more to it than that.” -A. O. Scott NY Times
