J'ai trouvé le film excellent dans son ensemble. Film assez noir sur le monde des performances,du ballet. Je le recommande. Très bien jouer par les acteurs.
Black Swan is a 2010 psychological thriller directed by Darren Aronofsky. It stars Natalie Portman, who won an Oscar for this role, as well as Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, and Barbara Hershey.
The story is about a ballerina named Nina, who has been training hard for years in an elite school. She finally earns top spot as prima ballerina, despite heavy competition from her rival, Lily (Mila Kunis). Nina gets the lead role in the company's production of Swan Lake, the classic tale of a girl who is transformed into a swan, but the role soon takes its toll on her in more ways than one.
This is an absolutely fantastic film. I was a dancer when I was younger, so I've always been fascinated by the art. While it's lovely to watch the dancers at work -- including Portman and Kunis, who worked hard to be able todance on screen -- it's also very horrifying to watch what these women put themselves through, both physically and mentally. I think the film captured this very well and turned it into a very powerful psychological analysis of the delicate psyche of someone who tries so hard to be perfect, and inevitably collapses under the pressure.
The film is rated R and has a running time of 110 minutes.
I loved the movie. Such masterpiece. All the work actors and directors, filming crew put in - crazy. Movie is somewhat dark. it shows you the ugly side of the beauty we see. Loved it.
I did enjoy this movie. The ballet is pretty well done. Shows how a girl goes crazy just from playing the black swan and looses reality because of the pressures of her life and desperately wanting to play the main character.
What do you think, have you seen it?
Wow Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman were both such amazing actresses in this movie! They fit into their roles so perfectly. This movie was so dark and so captivating. It made you really feel like you were the black swan because you were following her through her life and her struggles. I love the ballet in this movie as well, it's amazing.
This film was pretty dark about the world of ballet and performance. Natalie Portman proves her acting chops as a ballerina who moves up in the ranks and slows loses herself in the madness of this world of performance. I think this won her the Oscar for the picture. A great film to watch. A cameo by Winona Ryder as well.
I actually had a pretty hard time deciding whether or not I would recommend this one. I chose to recommend it however, because I think Natalie Portman's performance was flawless, and Vincent Cassel made an impression as well. I think I went into the film expecting a little more from the plot than I got, and I feel like a lot of the movie was focused on camera work (i.e. close ups for dramatic effect) rather than substance. With that said, I feel like there is a niche market for this one and not everyone will love it. I actually really liked it!
This movie is excellent. It literally had me cringing from start to finish - which at first I didn't like, but then I realized that it was exactly what it was supposed to do. It's a thriller so expect some very eerie parts, some gross parts, and some downright freaky parts.
I admit there were a couple times when I looked away from the screen because I was too scared to watch, but that's just me.
It's very well made, the acting is excellent, and it really messes with your mind! This movie is a definite must-watch! My only suggestion is if you scare easily (like me), don't watch it really late at night if you have to drive home to a dark, empty house -- I learned that the hard way.
