La Danse (in French)

Rating = B-

This Wiseman documentary of he Paris Opera Ballet is really quite wonderful. However, I saw it shown from DVD on a large screen, and it was not bright enough and didn't have sufficient resolution. It was a big disappointment. Wiseman's film shows, without any narration or commentary, the workings of a large organization of people working hard to perfect their art and to keep the organization functioning.
