The Red Shoes, the singular fantasia from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (Black Narcissus, The Small Back Room), is cinema’s quintessential backstage drama, as well as one of the most glorious Technicolor visual feasts ever concocted for the screen. Moira Shearer (The Tales of Hoffmann, Peeping Tom) is a rising star ballerina romantically torn between an idealistic composer and a ruthless impresario intent on perfection. Featuring outstanding performances, blazingly beautiful cinematography by Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The African Queen), Oscar-winning sets and music, and an unforgettable, hallucinatory central dance sequence, this beloved classic, now dazzlingly restored, stands as an enthralling tribute to the life of the artist.
Just an excellent movie, the staging, the acting, the dancing, the color..... worth the money.Published 10 days ago by D. Frey
I am appalled that Amazon puts Moira Shearer in the list of "supporting actors". She is the damn *star* of this movie! Please fix this!Published 13 days ago by Katherine Walton

As always this is a great movie and the new Technicolor on this new Criterion film really shows the actors well.
The reconstruction is perfect. The sound is excellent. I recently had a copy sent to a friend who had never even heard of this treasure.Published 1 month ago by gewidmet
