"The Red Shoes" has to be one of my favorite movies of all times. The music is gorgeous and the dancing delightful. But it is the psychology of the characters that fascinates me most. I am fascinated by Lermontov's obsession with the art of ballet equal to that of Julian's of music as well as Vicky's confusion over her love of art and her love of Julian. I cry everytime I see the ending...if only there was another choice. Yet the ambiguity of whether she chose or the shoes chose for her is part of the brilliance of the film.

Wonderful! When I first saw this movie on TV in the 1950's as little girl, I was spell bound. Even in black in white it made an impression. I watched it today for the first time in color and loved it even more. Great stuff for 1948! I thought briefly of keeping it to watch again but so many members are wishing for it, I just posted it. Enjoy!

The overall colors and style are amazingly beautiful. The real dance of the red shoes is breathtaking in its fantastic surrealism. Though some character motivations seem indiscernible, the thematic ending is brill.
