Festinema! Polina, danser sa vie

  • Alliance Française de St. Louis 930 McKnight Road Saint Louis, MO, 63132 United States (map)

In March, we are hosting a FREE film showing every Wednesday at 6:00pm. Come join us, and bring the kids along, for evenings filled with French cinema.

The movies are geared toward children of varying ages, but that doesn't mean adults can't enjoy these films. Plus, it gives you a great opportunity to work on your French listening skills!


This third Wednesday, we will be showing Polina, danser sa vie.

Moscow, early 90s. Polina, aged 8, is a gifted ballerina. From a modest background she joins the prestigious school of Professor Bojinsky, who trains dancers for the Bolshoi. He immediately grasps her tremendous potential and makes her work so hard that at only 18 her dream finally comes true and she enters the prestigious Bolshoi. This is when she meets Adrien, a charming French dancer. He will help her to discover not only love but, more importantly, a new form of dance, more contemporary and expressive, a kind of dance that will change her life forever. From Moscow to Aix-En-Provence and Antwerp, from success to disillusion, we follow Polina's incredible destiny.
