The White Crow (12a)

Director Ralph Fiennes. Biography/Drama with sub-titles


A young man of just 22, dressed in a black beret and a dark narrow suit, is on an aeroplane flying from St Petersburg to Paris. It is 1961 and Rudolf Nureyev, not yet the imperious figure of legend, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling for the first time outside the Soviet Union. Parisian life delights Nureyev and the young dancer is eager to consume all the culture, art and music the dazzling city has to offer. But the KGB officers who watch his every move become increasingly suspicious of his behavior and his friendship with the young Parisienne Clara Saint. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger.

Starring Oleg Ivanko, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Chulpan Khamatova, Ralph Fiennes, Alexey Morozov


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

An interesting film where most of the dialogue was in Russian. Luckily they did include sub-titles! Filmed in a very washed out colour palette to emphasise how drab the Soviet Union was. The film covered Nureyev's life up until the time he defected, and he showed that from a very early age he had an enormous talent for dancing but that he was a complete rebel.

A fantastic film,beautiful choreography, well acted and directed. All our audience enjoyed the film.

Well received. Stunned by the standard of dance and acting by first-time lead. Whole audience enjoyed it. Maybe a tad long?
