Editorial Reviews

The glamorous, turbulent life of Britain's international ballet superstar



At age 40, Dame Margot Fonteyn (Anne-Marie Duff The Virgin Queen, Shameless) was one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th Century. At her creative peak, she was a woman torn between her loyalties to the Royal Ballet and her marriage to unfaithful Panamanian diplomat, Roberto de Arias (Con O'Neill Criminal Justice). Under mounting pressure to retire, Margot's unexpected pairing with young Russian émigré Rudolph Nureyev (Michiel Huisman The Young Victoria) caused a global sensation and created one of the most enduring and stunning ballet partnerships of all time. Also starring Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland), Derek Jacobi (Endgame) and Penelope Wilton (Pride & Prejudice), Margot is a timeless tale of love, performance, passion and self-sacrifice.



BONUS PROGRAM: The Royal Ballet

Margot Fonteyn and Michael Somes dance scenes from the ballets, Swan Lake, Firebird and Ondine.

Format: DVD
This 85 mins. biopic reminds me of the 1980's movies about Princess Diana. It is of interest only if you are a fan. I am a fan-so I liked it. It is a low budget BBC production that offers a well written although superficial account of Margot Fonteyn, her marriage to a Panamanian diplomat and her alleged affair with Rudolf Nureyev. This well acted, pleasant looking movie deserves three stars. I am giving this item five stars because it includes the fabulous bonus DVD of The Royal Ballet in NTSC format which means it can be can be played on a U.S. DVD players. (At the date of this review an individual DVD of The Royal Ballet is only available at amazon.co.uk in PAL format.) Here is what you will get with the The Royal Ballet: 128 minutes of Margot Fonteyn dancing Ondine, The Firebird, and Swan Lake (Act II) with Michael Somes (not Nureyev) as the prince.

The biopic isn't very exciting, maybe even a little embarrassing, but I noticed that much of the dialog is taken from Meredith Daneman's very good biography of Fonteyn. If you read it and Julie Kavanagh's biography of Rudolf, you will know as much as there is to know about these iconic dancers, personally and professionally. I actually read both of those books twice because Kavanagh's led me to Daneman's, and that made me want to read the Rudolf bio again, etc. Time well spent, too.

The best part of this pair of DVD's is the bonus disk featuring Fonteyn in segments from three ballets. My favorite is Ondine. For a terrific review of the ballets on the bonus disk, I recommend Ivy Lin's review. In fact, read all her ballet DVD reviews, you can learn a lot from them and be guided to some other DVD's you might like to add to your collection. Expert information.

Okay biopic that doesn't begin to tell the full story of the life of this remarkable ballerina. I enjoyed watching it but it never felt like Fonteyn. Agree with others, however, that the extra footage that comes with the film make the purchase worth it.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first DVD in this 2-pack is "Margot" a BBC TV movie starring Anne Marie Duff, who played the part with nervous histrionics that contrasts with the reserved Fonteyn, so between that and her appearance which bears no resemblance at all to the ballerina (though the dancer stand-in had a similar body to the real woman), it was not believable and I could not get swept up in the story. The second DVD is the fantastic "Royal Ballet" film by Czinner, which is 3 different ballet acts all performed by Fonteyn and her partner Michael Somes. Seeing Fonteyn play Odette in Swan Lake is a revelation, her movements truly swan-like with fluttering bird's arms, head tucking in and out, and very quick beating knee kicks, a marvel of dance-acting. I'm not a big Firebird fan though again, she has the bird movements down, but Ondine is a unique and lovely ballet shown in entire 3 acts, in which Fonteyn again totally embodies the character of the innocent water sprite, and her shadow dance solo is just lovely. A Fonteyn ballet collection to be treasured.

First off let me start by saying that the extra dvd is fabulous and is worth the purchase for that. There are some lovely performances from Margot in it that are a must see. That being said the movie itself is cr*p! Horrible movie, inaccurate in conjunction to previous biographies, gratuitous sex scenes that make her look like a tart, poor acting, little to no dancing and I was literally embarassed to be watching it with my mother in law. In the end I threw away the movie and kept the extra dvd.

I must admit to expecting more from this compilation of ballets from Fonteyn. It seemed this movie were dances from the late '50s, early '60s, so don't expect a modern feel. I felt the dancers, aside from Fonteyn, were a little sloppy. Perhaps because I had never seen the Firebird before, I was shocked at the almost sexual assault feel of the beginning and the stereotype of Russians toward the end.

This is a nice video to watch ballet at home. The Swan Lake production is very traditional. The dancers are very good, of course.
