The Dancer

The Dancer ★★★½

What starts off as an interesting story of one of the pioneers of modern dance, quickly falls into familiar territory of any standard biopic dealing with love, rivalry and and the struggles of an artist willing to take her body to the extreme and renounce to other aspects of her life just for her devotion to her art. Still, La Danseuse is an acceptable period piece that is worth watching if only for Soko's performance, the costumes and the dance sequences.
