A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
When David Gordon Green was set to direct, Isabelle Fuhrman was announced to play Suzy Bannion, Isabelle Huppert as Madame Blanc and Janet McTeer as Miss Tanner. Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue were also cast, but it is unknown whether they would play updates of original characters or entirely new ones. Prior to his death in 2017, Nyqvist lamented the failure to launch Gordon's version, being a fan of the original film and looking forward to being in the remake.
It felt like what I think it must feel like to fuck.
Madame Blanc: Do you mean fuck a man?
Susie Bannion: No. I was thinking of an animal.
The movie is set in the so called: "Deutscher Herbst", the peak of left-wing RAF-terror in 1977. This period was quite warm with fair weather. The movie however shows low temperatures, heavy rain and snow. While this was probably meant to underline the dark tone of the plot, it is historically incorrect.
Just before the credits end, Susie reappears and makes a small gesture to the camera.
