Bonke og Koefoed: Ballroom Dancer /2

… Slavik, who corrects her at the same time as he declares his love to her. One-dimensional, the film is, and mid way through the story, the film goes dead, for a long period, coming up again with a beautiful sequence where the two, after having been apart, and after she has met another man, good for her, perform in a rehearsal room to the tunes of ”You were on My Mind”. That dance is great to watch… (Tue Steen Müller)

… the film had many nice scenes and some quite beautiful filming too. But during the film, I suddenly thought of Scorsese’s “The Color of Money” which starts by explaining the rules of the billiard game, 9-ball. Then the story and emotions can fold itself out, because you don’t have to think about the technicalities of the game anymore and you can enjoy the professional talk later on in the film. I felt left a little alone during “Ballroom Dancer” because I know very little of dance and I couldn’t understand why Slavik went mad at Anna and such. (Mikkel Stolt)
