Bolshoi

Valery Todorovsky

Russia, 2017, 132 Minutes

“It’s pure, absolute, complete beauty. I understood very well that behind this beauty there’s not just work and incredible human sacrifice, but that there is a whole world. And I wanted to enter that world and tell a story about it,” says director Valery Todorovsky (Hipsters, FFDC Opening Night 2008) about his new film. He describes the film’s format as a novel: “My characters go through three ages. It's’ a story of their friendship, which falls apart and is put back together again. It’s a story of coming of age and becoming a professional.” The movie centers on Yulvy and Karina, who study at the ballet academy and then compete to become lead dancers. “It’s a novel about the people who come into the world of ballet for a chance to stand for 10 minutes on the stage. People are prepared to die for it,” says Todorovsky.—The Moscow Times
