A fascinating look at the pressures behind the scenes of the Russian ballet as celebrated dancer Yekaterina, her body wearing out, and beset by backbiting and meddling bureaucrats, realises her time at the top is up.
We find out that no matter how dainty the ballerina, she still shuffles to the bathroom in her pyjamas in the morning just like an ordinary mortal. Yekaterina spends a lot of time under the shower, to the point where her splendidly big and hairy dog has learnt to sit ready and waiting outside the door with a pair of her ballet shoes in his mouth.
The lifestyle seems to involve a fair bit of undressing amongst its participants as a whole, though seen somewhat coyly here (it pays to double check the mirrors). When Yekaterina walks into the sauna the girls squeal delightedly as if it's that dratted troop of Boy Scouts again! All in all a rare cultural treat, especially if the last time you saw a ballerina naked was in a Joe D'Amato film stroking (ahem) a Shetland pony.
