The absolute Powell & Pressburger masterpiece that inspired Black Swan ! 

New 4K restoration

On the evening of the premiere of "Heart of Fire", the famous ballet director Boris Lermontov meets Victoria Page, a dancer who persuades him to hire her. Uncompromising, he runs his company with an iron fist. When he announced his new ballet, "Les Chaussons rouges", it was a project of unprecedented scope: a novice named Julian Craster would compose it, Victoria Page would dance it; they will become stars if they sacrifice everything to this art...

One of the highlights of the collaboration between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Imbued with an elusive magic, Les Chaussons rouges is a reference for many directors: Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Brian De Palma or more recently Darren Aronofsky with Black Swan . Interweaving fiery melodrama and theatrical representation of the world, Powell and Pressburger ( The Black Narcissus ) crafted a total show, bitter parable about artistic creation and its sacrificed destinies.
