"If you like this kind of thing it's great. :D"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I find it hard to review things because it's so influenced by personal taste, but I saw Dancer in the theatres as my friend wanted to watch it. It was well filmed, it only felt overly intrusive on a couple of occasions (I know they want to evoke emotions but I tend to be uncomfortable when it's too too personal); I was glad to have learned about Sergei Polunin's life. There's also some pretty spectacular dancing, naturally! Basically if you like somewhat sad documentaries about remarkable people's lives it's great.

"Absolute amazing dancer, very gifted."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great viewing, a must watch for all ballet lovers. Amazing talent and could of been the best male ballet dancer of all time if he didn't struggle so much mentally!



Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 21, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom – his talent more a burden than a gift. Here is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral. Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Sergei is transforming the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity comes with a high price. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet’s ‘hottest property'?


“If you're a fan of dance and dance filmed, this Dancer will leave you very happy.” –

“Steven Cantor's film is a detailed portrait of an enormously talented artist who seems to have been unable to cope with fame and the separation from his family. The dance scenes are spectacular.” – The Australian

“Exhilarating, moving, illuminating and, ultimately, inspirational. You don't have to be a dance aficionado to appreciate it.” – NYC Movie Guru
