Le Roi Danse
Le Roi Danse is a splendid looking film, and it has few peers in terms in terms of pure visual dynamics (indeed, in terms of visuals, its closest relative is probably Moulin Rouge). What's even more surprising is that it was directed by Gerard Corbiau, the man responsible for one of last year's most depressing dramas, the extraordinarily bleak Piano Teacher. Thankfully, things aren't so despairing here, and although it's a relatively niche-driven excursion, this is fairly entertaining, if not quite gripping, stuff.
