An orphan girl dreams of becoming a ballerina and flees her rural Brittany for Paris, where she passes for someone else and accedes to the position of pupil at the Grand Opera house.
The USA changed the film title from Ballerina to Leap.
Jump and ring the bell.
Odette: Just do it.
Felicie: You don't want me to dance?
Odette: No talking. Jump and ring the bell.
Felicie: You said we were going to train.
Odette: This is it. Again.
Odette: Felicie, you lack precision and finesse. You have little or no sense of rhythm. ...
Odette nicknames Félicie "Sherlock Holmes". The first Sherlock Holmes story was published in 1887 (possibly the year the movie is set) in an English magazine and wouldn't have been known in France until sometime after.
The title doesn't appear until the end of the film.
