“A film that takes dance as seriously as its protagonists and indeed, Polina contains several beautifully poetic moments that involve choreographed bodies against gorgeous backdrops.” Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter.
Polina, a gifted Bolshoi ballerina, falls in love with a French dancer who introduces her to contemporary dance and leads her to travel the world. This fiction feature about a young Russian ballerina co-stars Juliette Binoche and Niels Schneider and was co-directed by world-renowned French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj.
