“The filmmakers exhibit a refined and elegant eye for the kind of quiet loveliness that can be found in movement as well as stillness. This is one documentary, as "La Danse" was before it, that is a thing of beauty in and of itself.”~Kenneth Turan, LA Times

Aroview: Delightful depiction of renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied (best known for choreographing the dance sequences in Black Swan) in his new position as director of The Paris Opera Ballet.

We experience Millepied as he attempts to rejuvenate the company and break down some of the institutional hierarchies and bureaucracy that has characterised it for years - no easy task, but he takes to it with intelligence and cheerful tenacity. His attempts to open the company to ethnic diversity and focus on a pure enjoyment of dance, rather than on competition, insecurity and fear, is an inspiration for dancers. Featuring appearances by composer Nico Muhly, opera alumna Aurélie Dupont, and designer Iris van Herpen, among others.
