  1. ginabalamucki's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    This is one of my favorite films. A uniquely visually stunning fable about a woman forced to choose between creative passion and romantic love. Incredible dance sequences, costumes, sets, script, everything is perfect.

  2. Georges Iroh's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    Once you commit yourself to following your passion, there is no turning back, and compromise would be fatal. A sophisticated, radiant showbiz psychodrama about the prohibitive cost of striving for ideals. No longer must I wonder why the eponymous ballet sequence is so widely revered; it approaches 'total art'-- interconnected creative disciplines that give shape to an immersive, omni-sensory emotional experience.

  3. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    A marvelous, expressionistic, hypnotizing assemblage of passion and obsession, expressed through some of the most engaging movement to have ever been captured on film (and in Technicolor). Space and time collapse in kaleidoscopic flurry! Its final leg does limp a bit, succumbing to a culmination of events that, although fitting and utterly inevitable, feel too rudimentary in execution.

  5. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    I think this movie is kitsch. Ballet and film are not a match made in heaven. Everything is over the top. Moira Shearer redeems a lot but here she is saddled with heavy melodrama. The exotic Powell/Pressburger “Black Narcissus” was a more congenial vessel for their flamboyance.

  6. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    It's the complexity of the cast specifically Lermontov who's personal background is left in speculation that happens backstage of the theatre and the visual treat onstage of the dancing choreography, music and fantasy element that I thought was lifted in a real life Fantasia segment. Nothing matters but the dance and dedicating your life to perfecting the art and becoming the greatest that anyone has known on stage.

    The film reminds us of where great cinema comes from

  8. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    Yeah yeah yeahs once said, “Dance dance dance till you’re dead”

  9. Eleonoora's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    I enjoyed watching it (I saw it in Helsinki with my friend Anna) but I couldn't help feeling it didn't stand the time, eventhough it's considered to be a classic.

  11. Joshua's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    A near-masterwork of melodrama, perhaps the most impressive facet of which is the expressionistic interpretation of the dance, which, rather than a staged recording, constructs it own cinematic world of editing tricks, close-ups and elaborate sets, which reflect the fraught emotional world of the plot. A dream in a sleeping theatre.

  13. Foxybingo's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    I know I'm very much in the minority but I don't understand why this film is as praised as it is. Yeah, the dance scene was fantastic, perhaps even one of the greatest moments in cinema in its entirety, but that alone isn't enough to get past flat characters, absurdly hammy acting and an ending so melodramatic it becomes ridiculous. Worth watching for the imagery alone but certainly not the masterpiece people say.

  14. Ronja's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    wow, loved every inch of it! and god was i nervous when she danced the red shoes

  15. Chartrand Mendeleev's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

  16. Basqueville's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    Chef d'oeuvre. Mon film préféré.

  17. tidal waif's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    Red shoes - the locus of clashing compulsions. Think Vic & Julian would fit in Barbican's expo on creative couples if fiction qualified? Gustav & Alma Mahler are featured, linked by comparable ignominy: Alma quit her musicianship to advocate her husband's. Memento Clara Schumann who crossed out lieds for liebe. To say woman is nature is spraying venom on a posy: nature blossoms mid pestilence & needn't make a Choice.

  18. Kuja's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    4,5. In terms of body of work, maybe The Tales of Hoffmann is best resolved. Furthermore, people like Lermontov are abominable, even in the world of fiction. But... but... what are those scenic art and paintings!? And The Red Shoes choregraphy!?? And the music?! Breathless.

  19. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

  22. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    7.9/10 my review - https://wp.me/p1eXom-3CG “One of the most factitiously gorgeous movies of all time, but there is a catch.”

  23. Brady's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    rewatched, greatest use of color ever

  24. jhubbs's rating of the film Las zapatillas rojas

    Such colors! Plot is thematically complete but suffers from an overlong runtime. Some of the acting is too Old Hollywood dramatic, although the film feels well ahead of its time (1948!). Several shots are jaw-dropping, particularly in the extended ballet sequence. Walbrook steals the show as Lermontov.
