This striking and moving documentary from BAFTA nominated directors Jacqui and David Morris traces the extraordinary life of Rudolf Nureyev. From his birth in the 5th class carriage of a trans-Siberian train, to his dramatic leap to freedom in the West at the height of the Cold War, and unprecedented adulation as the most famous dancer in the world. The film highlights Nureyev's unlikely yet legendary partnership with Margot Fonteyn and charts his meteoric rise to the status of global cultural phenomenon. Nureyev's life plays out like the sweeping plot of a classic Russian novel. His story is Russia's story. Blending never-before-seen footage, with an original score by award-winning composer Alex Baranowski and spellbinding newly choreographed dance tableaux directed by Royal Ballet alumnus, Russell Maliphant, Nureyev is a theatrical and cinematic experience like no other. This is a portrayal as unique as the man himself. There will never be another Nureyev.

I'm not sure why there's so much negativity on this film. It's not a documentary, not intended to be one. It's just a very emotional documentary about a man who is dealing with cancer and his wife who is dealing with her own health issues. He has a lot of energy and some great, down to earth stories to tell. He's very relatable and I think people can relate to his life. There's a lot of drama, lots of heartbreak, some great moments. It's just a very human, well done story. 7/10

From all the reports I've read and watched, this is a very clever and subtle little film. One of the most interesting aspects of the film is that it's not so much about the environment or the environment as much as it is about the people in the world. The idea of the film is that the people of the world are largely ignorant of the environment. It's about the big cities and the big industries that are destroying the environment. Yet the people of the world do not understand how the atmosphere works and they believe that the environment is a total mystery. And when this is shown, it's just an excuse for more and more pollution. The idea is simple, but the execution is very good. This is what I love most about this film. This film is not a total loss because it's a very clever and subtle film. It doesn't even try to be too deep. It tries to show that the environment is an issue that is affecting people, and yet it does not pretend to be a serious issue. The idea is that it's just about the environment. The only reason the film is made is that there are so many people that do not care about the environment, and it's just another way of showing that the environment is important. This film is very well made. The photography and sound is very good. I love the editing. The music is very effective. I especially love the music that is used in the film. It's very rare to find a film with such good sound and music, but this is one of them. This film is intelligent. I'm a very skeptical person. I don't have a high opinion of movies. This film was made very cleverly. I think it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I think this film is brilliant. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

I was pleasantly surprised by this documentary. It is not just a history lesson, but a sort of a history lesson for those who are unfamiliar with the situation. I don't know the details of the Armenian Genocide, but I am familiar with the events surrounding it, and this film is a good place to start learning more about the subject. The film is divided into three parts: 1. What happened in 1915 and what happened after that. 2. The Armenian Genocide. 3. The Armenian Freedom Struggle. The first part is very straightforward, showing the horrors of the Armenian Genocide and the reasons why it happened. It's a bit depressing, but the second part is very uplifting and makes you feel good. The third part is more of a history lesson. The first part was made by a woman, and the second part is a documentary, made by a man, who does not know much about the subject. This makes the documentary very personal, and makes the documentary feel very personal. I would recommend this documentary to everyone who wants to learn more about the subject. 9/10

One of the best documentaries I've seen. The story is told from the point of view of the children and their parents. It is a very powerful and heart-wrenching story. It is very well-filmed and the sound quality is amazing. I really recommend this film.

I saw this film at the Sundance Film Festival in January and it was a great experience. I was drawn in by the beauty of the photography and the fact that it was shot on location. The documentary is very well-done and captures the same sense of the Russian culture that I have experienced as a teenager. I also think that the film-makers captured the beauty of the culture of the Soviet Union in a way that I have never seen before. The film is very well-made and informative. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about the Russian culture. I also would recommend this film to anyone who has never heard of the Soviet Union or the Soviet Union before.

I had the pleasure of watching this documentary at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. I was blown away by the raw, intense, and brutally honest truth that the men, women and children who were the victims of the Chernobyl disaster were forced to live through. A truly captivating documentary that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and will leave you thinking about the "lessons learned" and the "quest for justice."

A documentary about a very unusual phenomenon: the belief in a cosmic force that is alive and powerful enough to give life to the deceased. The documentary is extremely slow-paced and lacks some depth, but this is because the subject matter is so complex. The documentary is a great example of a documentary that is so deep and very difficult to understand, but it is so worth watching. The documentary does a great job at explaining the theory of "dead energy" that is responsible for everything that happens in the world. The documentary also discusses how these "dead energy" is the main reason that the world is in a constant state of war. This documentary is an excellent example of how documentaries can be great. The documentary is very informative, but also very difficult to understand. It is a documentary that should be watched by everyone.
