I don't like ballet. But damn, I can't take my eyes off him.
Not because I like his ballet, but rather you can see in his every move that he has worked his ass off to reach this level.
This is not a documentary. More like a drama. And its captivating.
For me, the most tragic figure is Sergei's father. Why? Go see it yourself.
Oh, and by the way this movie has another painful reminder. That in order to excel in anything, you better be prepared to cough up blood. No, you don't want? No worries, I saved you a seat in mediocrity right next to me for all eternity. Enjoy.
