Bolero

Belgium (MIFF 1969, Programme F)

Director: Jean-Marc Laudier

Ravel's most popular work is danced by the Belgian 20th Century Ballet, with choreography by Maurice Bejart. This is a straightforward cinematic record of the performance with neither tricks nor frills, but just the relentless tumescence of the music with its visual counterpart in dance.
