| Great movie that meets and exceeds expectations
If you like dance movies, this is for you.

It's comparable to the best true-story dance movies like 'Mao's Last Dancer', 'Dancing Across Borders', and so on. If you liked those movies, you will love this.

It's well cast, well acted, well danced, and very interesting and dramatic.

I loved it!

Highly recommended for dance-movie fans.

The lead character is especially well cast, and he dances marvelously, with passion and beauty and skill, while also being an excellent actor.
