Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn star in this 1965 film of the acclaimed Royal Ballet production of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan. Paul Czinner, a British director known for his literal adaptations, remounted the work on a sound stage and used eight cameras to record the action. The result seems less a cinematic exploration of dance than a theatrical experience viewed from a distance, yet the film is invaluable as a document of the two dancers’ extraordinary partnership. 126 min.
