Set in 1879 Paris. An orphan girl dreams of becoming a ballerina and flees her rural Brittany for Paris, where she passes for someone else and accedes to the position of pupil at the Grand Opera house.
“The morals in the film are significant and should set ideals for children: dreams can come true regardless of who you are and everybody is a somebody regardless whether they’re orphans or from affluent backgrounds.Poignant and funny, this is perfect holiday family viewing.” PREVIEWFILMS.com.au
“…a charm becomes prevalent, and an enchantment sweeps over proceedings…The film is enriched, persistently, but the glorious aesthetic experience on offer as the vibrancy and romanticism of the 1879 Paris setting is wondrous on the big screen. There’s a meticulous attention to detail from the animators too, especially in the way they’ve evidently studied the technique of ballet, which should go some way in appeasing aficionados of the dance form.” FLICKREEL.
