In a hidden location, pregnant teenage girls await the birth of their babies in secret.

During the long wait, the girls share each others joys and sorrows. They form close friendships and distract themselves with strange games, until the bubble bursts, and Katja becomes painfully aware of the plans that the nuns are making behind their backs.

You're easily transported back to 19th Century France.I love titles that have double meanings. While the orphan Felicie's dream was to produce the incredible leap she had seen a ballerina make once, the film also encourages us all to take a leap of faith and hard work to make our dreams come true.Uplifting theme: Passion Dream big and take action. You are unique. Don't let anyone tell you that you're nothing. Persistence, hard work, tenacityThings I liked: Catchy theme song. All of the music was really good and included a lot of lovely songs unfamiliar to Americans, as well as a few faves like "Suitcase" by Sia, and "Confident" by Demi Lovato. Carly Rae Jepsen voices Odette, and also sings and wrote several of the songs. The scene where Victor tells Felicie about his first day in Paris was hilarious. Excellent animation stops and sequences. Felicie's training sequence was really cute and as inspirational as any sports movie training montage. Elle Fanning voices Felicie, whose dream it is to dance in the Nutcracker Ballet. Elle Fanning actually performed in The Nutcracker 3D (2010 movie). Maddie Ziegler voices Camille. She's a dancer in real life, having appeared on Dance Moms in 2011. Victor was voiced by Dane DeHaan in the international version of the film. Nat Wollf was used in the American release. It's well balanced in comedy, magic, and drama. The ballet battle between Felicie and Camille before the big evening performance was adorable and hilarious. It feels like a European animation, because, it is. Originally, it was entitled "Ballerina", which is the version I first saw. It was choreographed by Aurelie Dupont and Jeremie Belingard. The dancing animation in the beginning felt a little off, but by the end it was perfect.Things I didn't like: Some of the animation looked rushed and out of sync, particularly in the beginning. The plot isn't unique, but it's still very sweet.Funny lines: "Thank you Mother Superior. And may I just say that you're looking very superior today?" - Victor "Who is that?" Felicie (Elle Fanning)"Rudy." - Dora (Elana Dunkelman)"From the top boys' class, holder of the best cheekbones at the Opera award. I love him. He's so blonde and shiny." - Nora (Shoshana Sperling) "How is that pick-up line working for you?" - Felicie "I am loving your apron!" - Victor "Paris! City of romance. City of Dreams! City of Romance! City of Pigeons!" - VictorInteresting lines: It's when you're tired you start to progress." - Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen) "Tired is for losers." - Regine (Julie Khaner) "There's a difference between being ready and being ready to do it well. That's why we train every day." - OdetteTips for parents: This is an enjoyable film for all ages. It's funny, sweet, and inspiring. Several fart jokes. Your little ballerina daughter will be very inspired! I really like how the movie features two children with dreams, who don't just fantasize about what they want to do, but are willing to work hard to achieve it. No profanity. Some bullying. Some animated moments of peril.MOVIE REVIEW [email protected]

Trevor G (de) wrote: Xbox live arcade had a pre-release of this movie so of course I jumped at the opportunity to see it early. I mean c'mon, Ron Pearlman, Tom Jane, John Malcovitch! I guess all good actors misjudge a script sometimes. It had potential to be a good movie, just was made too poorly. Somewhat entertaining at times, but mostly ends up being just what appears to be a glorified sci-fi channel flick. At most it's a rental, don't spend money to see this in theaters.

She was born to play this character (probably written for her in the first place). The filmis nicely directed and the reconstitution of the era well done. It's a good film, fair and square.
