Reviews:

A Bruce Beresford masterpiece
This cineaste and balletomane had given up many years ago any hope of ever seeing the dance rendered adequately on film. Enter Bruce Beresford. I suppose every ladies’ book club in the English-speaking world has read Mao’s Last Dancer, so if you wanted to make a film based on that autobiography, you’d first have to find a brave director. Well, this is it. Linking together life in desolate inner China and a sophisticated western world has been done before. But there is an emotional story here, and the casting agencies deserve enormous credit for finding such competent people. I mean, do you find an actor and teach him to dance, or do you get a dancer to act? Whatever; the lead in this film can dance very well indeed, and his acting is more than competent. I won’t retell the story. Just let it be said, that at the performance I saw, most of the audience sat through the credits. Those who left early looked mystifed by the applause. A ladies’ book club cum chick flick? I think not. Sure, the tissues were out, but this is one surely exciting film.
