Description: It is a film without language, no spoken word. Everything that is worth to be told is told with music and dance.

"13.10. Idea elokuvassa on periaatteessa kiva ja onnistunut - erään tanssipaikan kuvaaminen eri vuosikymmeninä lähes pelkästään tanssillisen ilmaisun kautta, ilman dialogia tai ulkomaailmallisia tapahtumia. Lopputulos jää silti vähän yksiulotteiseksi, en ainakaan itse jaksa katsella karikatyyrimaisia hahmoja tanssahtelemassa hömelösti näin helvetin pitkään. Etenkään kun tanssi ei mielestäni ole taitavasti tai edes mielenkiintoisesti koreografioitua. Tässä olisi ollut potenti"

"11.4. 2011 This is Ettore Scola at his most original. There's no dialogue in the movie at all, but the director analyzes political and cultural atmosphere through music, dancing and feelings. Dialogue isn't needed, because music and dancing connects people, no matter what their nationality or native language is. "Le bal" starts from a Parisian club, and continues from the 1930's towards modern times. This is an incredibly beautiful film, full of heart and passion. It's true high quality enterta"
