Notes & Reviews:

Dominique Delouche is one of the world’s most distinguished documentary filmmakers. A retrospective of his ballet films was presented just last summer by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. His 1999 portrait of Maya Plisetskaya chronicles the dancer, the woman, the teacher, the iconoclast through her own narration, performance footage and coaching sessions with dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet. Excerpts from Don Quixote, Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake and Bolero demonstrate Plisetskaya’s awesome technique and her distinctive style that has often been imitated, but never duplicated.
