The Red Shoes (1948)

Directors: Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger

Writers: Emeric Pressburger (Addition Dialogue by Keith Winter) (Based on a fairly tale by Hans Christian Anderson)

Amazing.  Required viewing.  Criterion Blu-Ray looks phenomenal.  The dance sequence towards the end is one of the greatest thing I have ever seen in a film it makes my eyes tear up!  Great movie.  Also just reminds me how bullshit most modern musicals like Rock of Ages are.  If they had even 1/4th of the passion and feeling this does they’d be much better off.
