The Red Shoes

The Red Shoes

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese proclaimed Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s 1948 classic, ‘the most beautiful Technicolor film ever made’. Scorsese should know, given he spearheaded the restoration to its original glory of this breathtaking melodrama about artistic creativity versus love. Scots ballerina Moira Shearer stars as the dancer torn between her professional and personal lives.

Filmhouse, Edinburgh until Thu 24 Dec; GFT, Glasgow, from 27-Wed 30 Dec.
