Winner of the UK Feature section at Raindance 2012.
This is yet another ballet themed film at Raindance. Two dancers meet at the tube escalators and what seems to be a reactivation of a previous acquaintance, it turns out they had never met before. They spend the night together – in the Linklater’s sense of Before Sunrise and Before Sunset – walking around London, talking, or not, sometimes dancing, drinking, exploring the outside world through each other’s eyes.
Supposedly it is a non-mainstream love story. Supposedly it is a fake love story without a happy ending. Supposedly it is a warm tale making us believe in humans again.
It is nicely photographed, craftily lit and London always looks stunning in October, the duo surely knows how to dance. I liked the costumes.
Would a ballet dancer riding a bike to the audition throw in two bricks into his backpack? Just a thought.
