'The role is destroying you...'

A (non-sinister) Black Swan themed post.

I went to see 'Black Swan' with Grace on (orange) Wednesday. I have been a little slow getting to the cinema for this one, but it was certainly worth the wait! Very absorbing, it even made me feel slightly queasy. Despite it's chilling nature, I have been thinking about ballerina type things all day.

So, here we are, some photographs of English ballet dancers by Collin Jones. (scanned from a The Sunday Times Magazine, I'm unsure of the date.)

I wonder if their lives were as nightmare-like as Nina's... ??

  1. I loved the movie a lot!

    Nice pictures to illustrate the life of a ballerina. I especially love the little girl in the background, something special about it!

  2. I hated the film - think I'm the only one! But, think life as a ballerina must really be pretty difficult.

  7. Such pretty photos! I didn't see Black Swan because even the previews creeped me out a little too much -- I heard it was fantastic, though. Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Lovely photos, I still haven't seen the film. I'm a little bit reluctant since I felt so bad after seeing Requiem for a Dream, and I have a feeling this film will leave a little bit of the same feeling. Will it?

  9. Oh well, I still haven't seen the movie, it's just I have this feeling that I cannot stand sad movies anymore! It's like, don't we have enough drama in our lifes, why then we should to find it somewhere else :D
    I'll probably see it anyway somehow in the future, but for now I just want to say that I love the pictures above :)

  13. Great pictures :-)
    I still need to watch that film, I'm really looking forward to it as I love the theme & Vincent Cassel *drools*
    From what I know ballet dancing is a really demanding sport & I think you really have to commit to it because it will effect all parts of your life. But I sure hope it isn't a nightmare!
