14 October 2006 | mary-shepard
| A Russian ballerina on tour in Toronto falls in love and struggles to express herself in spite of cultural and linguistic differences.
The film is an excellent exercise in character study, but the characters, while interesting in and of themselves, become flat in a script that is too shallow to allow a mature development of the conflicts that result from the trials and tribulations of a foreigner trying to express herself in a land where she cannot speak the language, find a job, or even dance the ballet--her craft and passion. The camera experiments with darkly nuanced light and shadow and seldom allows the viewer a chance to see or feel any particular moment in space or time. These fleeting moments may actually reflect, intentionally, the film's theme, but the result is a loosely knitted sequence of film clips that result in a weakly developed plot instead of what could have been a much more powerful story.
