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
