Dancer

Steven Cantor, 2016o

After an unprecedented career in ballet, Sergei Polunin turned his back on dancing at the age of 22. The strenuous nature of ballet and the burden of fame brought him to the brink of self-destruction. But now, with the support of his mentor Igor Zelensky, Polunin has started to dance again and is ready to return to the big stage.

Der fesselnde, bestechend komponierte Film zeichnet [Sergei Polunins] Lebensweg und die damit einhergehenden Höhen und Tiefen nach.

Jörg Gerle

Séquences de danse, de spectacles ou de créations, images super 8 ou vidéo du prodige lorsqu’il était enfant alternent avec des interviews de ses proches, famille et amis essentiellement. Polunin lui-même intervient face caméra. Son charisme et sa beauté subjuguent. L’équilibre entre témoignages et extraits de danse est assez juste et évite la redondance.
