Ballerina REVIEWS

  • Familiar but charming, definitely worth a watch

    January 5th, 2017

    Being a lifelong fan of animation and ballet, 'Ballerina' seemed very appealing to me. Plus who doesn't love an underdog/person who wants to succeed at something they love against adversity story.. While not up there with my favourite animated films, or one of my favourite films of 2016, 'Ballerina' is nonetheless charming with a lot of delights. ...

  • A delightful underdog story.

    December 25th, 2016

    Something tells me there's more to the film than just a wannabe ballerina setting out to achieve her dreams. I could be very wrong but I believe his to be a personal accomplishment for French director/screenplay writer Eric Summer who comes from Brittany himself, where this story starts at an orphanage in 1879. . Enlisting the talent of French ani...

  • Ballerina-Reuniting with a great art: Ballet

    March 3rd, 2017

    Tired of watching modern dance movies that has you say: Another one of Hollywood street dancer groups with all its acrobatics that must have come from America's got talent aiming for Hollywood that tosses aside the traditional dance of Ballet? . Produced at L'Atelier Animation in Montreal, Canada, Ballerina (2016) is majestic at all levels from th...

  • Dreaming's easy, but chasing it needs all the effort.

    May 4th, 2017

    Well, I praise a lot, particularly the European animations for preserving the 2D animation. That does not mean they lack behind in 3D format. The recent film 'The Little Prince' was the perfect example of a quality 3D animation outside Hollywood. Pars with Disney, Pixar standards. Technically, as well as the story contents. But the quantities are ...

  • Beautiful but frustratingly disappointing

    July 30th, 2017

    I'm going to keep this short with a list of positives and negatives;. Positives: It looks beautiful, both the settings and the movements.. Negatives: Horrible story. Terribly written dialogues, characters and comedy. The action scene at the end makes no sense and comes out of nowhere. The moral of the story seems to say that it's OK to cheat and l...

  • Charming movie about chasing your dreams and never giving up

    May 17th, 2017

    Im a huge fan for animation, I heard about this movie and didn't really know what to expect. What I got was a beautiful movie with the positive messages of chasing your dreams and never giving up on them no matter how hard things may seem.. I do kinda wish the subplot of victor could have tied in more with the main focus of Felicie but it is what ...

  • Great movie with a major fail!

    March 24th, 2017

    I saw this just few days ago in a local theater. In brief:. The good: + Great visuals + Nice music + Cool story. The bad: - Teen pop in a music about classical ballet! - Daisy Dukes-like pants in a 1900 France?. So generally I enjoyed the movie. It is sort of Cinderella story. My little one did not wanted to see it, so I went alone. However, this ...

  • Part Anastasia, Part Little Orphan Annie; Wholly Appropriate for Children

    May 19th, 2017

    Although there are many children's movies in recent memory that appeal to aspiring singers, the offering of films and even television shows for aspiring dancers is dismal. It's not like there isn't an audience. How many millions of young girls across the world take ballet classes? "Leap!" offers an alternative to recent children's movies like "Sin...

  • Ballerina is a great animation film

    May 26th, 2017

    Ballerina is a great french-Canadian animation film about 2 waifs who escape their orphanage and go to Paris to reach their dreams & never give up, Félicie (Elle Fanning) with a passion a natural talent for dance & Victor (Dane Dehaan) an inventor. Beautiful music, landscapes & sceneries, a Belle Époque tale that involves the construction of the...

  • Wonderful Film with a Big Meaning about Never Giving up on Your Dreams

    July 13th, 2017

    Leap! is a great film with a big meaning. This film teaches it all - honesty, perseverance and the importance of practice, family, believing in yourself, believing in your dreams and passion. Felicie makes a lot of mistakes during her journey, which set her back, but that doesn't stop her from continuing to push through.. The story begins when Fel...
