Company, The


aka: Das Ensemble
USA 2003, 111 minutes
Dir. Robert Altman
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama, Music / Performing Arts, Dance


Aroview: Arch-auteur Robert Altman pirouettes his way through a multi-stranded drama about a Chicago-based ballet company, set mainly round the rising star of ingenue Neve Campbell.

Although finally a little lightweight, this still finds possibilities in the working process of the ensemble - the high athleticism of the dancers, the artistic compromises of the producers - that together with some splendid ballet sequences keep things humming. Based around the real-life Joffret Company. Dance scenes choreographed by Lar Lubovitch and Robert Desrosiers.
