  1. Ultimately the ballet performances, and notably the work of Stiefel, a star with American Ballet Theatre, are the only moments that deserve center stage.

    The movie uses the materials of melodrama, but is gentle with them; it's oriented more in the real world, and doesn't jack up every conflict and love story into an overwrought crisis.

    There isn't a sensible reason to recommend this movie, except that its melange of clichés and conventions is embarrassingly enjoyable.

    Only really kicks in when it is dancing, which is about half the time.
  5. Don't like archetypes? Wait till you meet the cliches.
  6. As a Balanchine-like martinet, Peter Gallagher is a hoot, whispering to his minions about good and bad feet.
