Exquisite documentary
5 August 2000 | by maharani_mdSee all my reviews

Exquisite documentary gets the maximum from articulate understatement. A Canadian ballet company hones its versatility and overall dance creativity and sharpness by taking Flamenco lessons at 5:15 AM. Without ever stating the obvious, Flamenco at 5:15 expertly takes us into the heads of the different company participants as they overcome their obsession with the harsh schedule to give themselves over to the beauty and mysticism of Flamenco. This should be a must for all lovers of dance.
