Le Jeune Homme et la Mort

France, 1973 (MIFF 1996, Reel Dance - Cinematheque de la Dance)

"There was a side to Nureyev that was bestial' frenetic, like a centaur or Rasputin, even though he controlled every step. He was extraordinarily handsome, with a remarkably photogenic face the evidence being Le Jeune Homme el la Mort."
