Ballroom Dancer by Christian Bonke, Andreas Koefoed (2011)
How often does a documentary watch like a love story? Not that often in my experience.
This is a love story.
Camera follows Slavik – a Russian ballroom dancer, who works on returning back to fame, back to the good old days when he was the World Champion. He starts anew with new young partner and competes against his old flame, who kept the title – winning with her new partner.
This film is so amazingly photographed and scored, that only for those two elements it is worth a watch. And on top of that you have a great true story of one man fighting for his career, his love, his life. Amazing film.
