Polina (Danser sa Vie)

(Danser sa Vie)

Ballet epic co-directed by French dancer/choreographer Angelin Preljocaj, starring Anastasia Shevtsova and Juliette Binoche.... More

Trained from an early age by rigorous, perfectionist Professor Bojinski, Polina (Shevtsova) is a promising dancer. She is just about to join prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance. That throws everything into question on a profound level. Polina leaves it all behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (Binoche). Despite her determination and hard work to the point of obsession, Polina just can't seem to break through.Hide
