Description

This film traces Rudolf Nureyev's poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his arrival at the epicenter of western culture in Paris in the early 1960s and a nail-biting defection to the West. It's the true story of an incredible journey by a unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever.
