A classic

11 years, 3 months ago at Sep 1 6:53
A few years back, I kept coming across those two names, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, and they were always referred as some of the best movie directors ever (Martin Scorsese, for example, is a huge fan) and, supposedly, the movies they made together represented the Golden Age of British cinema. After hearing all these, I started to watch all the movies they made together and, by now, I ha... read more
View all The Red Shoes reviews
Under the authoritarian rule of charismatic ballet impressario Boris Lermontov, his proteges realize the full promise of their talents, but at a price: utter devotion to their art and complete loyalty to Lermontov himself. Under his near-obsessive guidance, young ballerina Victoria Page is poised for superstardom, but earns Lermontov's scorn when she falls in love with Julian Craster, composer of "The Red Shoes," the ballet Lermontov is staging to showcase her talents. Vicky leaves the company and marries Craster, but still finds herself torn between Lermontov's demands and those of her heart.

"“It’s one of the great films of all time on so many levels – just to look at if nothing else. It is so beautiful…. Moira Shearer with that red hair is spectacular in Technicolor….

It isn’t only dancers . It’s anyone who has this dream to do something of the arts, because there is a"

"If you haven’t seen the 1948 cinematic eyesore "The Red Shoes," watch it immediately. This film directed by the dynamic Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger is a fantastical love letter to ballet done in Jean Cocteauean flourish. An aspiring ballerina Victoria Page (Moira Shearer) enlists in a contractual deal with producer Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook) to star in a variety of ballets, particularly the one called “The Red Shoes”. However, her dreams, dedications and ambitions crumble o"
