Director Ralph Fiennes (best known as an actor, shifts between the story of Nureyev’s creative breakthrough in St. Petersburg under the tutelage of mentor Alexander Pushkin, evocative glimpses of his impoverished wartime childhood, and the few intoxicating days of achievement and acclaim in Paris that lead to a break with his past. World class ballet performer Oleg Ivenko delicately conveys the pansexual intensity of Nureyev’s dance style and his unpredictable mixture of fragility, generosity and grandiosity.
