A fantastically creative film. Visually, it's seriously one of the best ever and deserves all of its accolades. The acting is a little dated, it clearly was made in 1948, in fact, you could convince me that it was even earlier. The highlight, of course, is The Red Shoes sequence, which takes place right in the middle of the film. As old-fashioned as teh acting it, I really can't believe that that sequence was able to be made in '48. It's truly amazing. This is a must-see film.

An absolutely beautiful looking movie, with some somewhat dull characters.

Powell and Pressburger at their best

Michael Powell and Emerich Pessburger have made some of the greatest films of all time, yet you have more then likely never heard of them before. I honestly don’t know why nobody cares about them. Everyone knows about Hitchcock and his string of thrillers, but I seem to be the only person who has heard of Powell and Pessburger.

The Red Shoes is one of there most famous works, and one of the few that have gotten an American DVD release outside of Criterion.

The film is about a young woman who aspires to become a great dancer. She finally makes it big with a man who owns a ballet company, and comes, after some convincing, to believe that the woman could truly be a great dancer.

The movie is a stark entertaining tall tale that warns of the danger, and rewards, that come with obse...
