In 1961, acclaimed dancer Rudolf Nureyev traveled with the Kirov Ballet to Paris, where he was exposed to the art and opportunities in the free world. While there, he broke numerous rules imposed by his government and was being sent back to Moscow, when he defected. This narrative follows his awakening in Paris, but also whips back and forth to his developmental years in Russia. Sometimes the flashbacks are abrupt and without logic to the scene before, but they do provide some insight into his character development. Dancer Oleg Ivenko not only handles the acting well, his dancing is wonderful. While there’s not much emotional development, the story is still fascinating. The ’60s era costumes are especially attractive. In French, Russian and English with subtitles. (Criterion Cinemas only)
