"...A 90-minute biography of the dancer's astonishing life....This documentary features several candid interviews, talks with some of the aged dancers who discovered his talent and historic film clips of Nureyev's performances..."
One of the major talents of ballet dancing and an international sex symbol, Rudolf Nureyev inspired awe and lust in millions of viewers. Director Patricia Foy examines the ballet dancer's amazing life in NUREYEV, a documentary which tells his rags to riches story. Brought up in poverty and raised to fame and fortune through his preternatural dancing talent and hard work, the uncompromising artist kept his personal life very private. Through clips and interviews with friends and contemporaries like Margot Fonteyn, Merle Park, and David Wall, Foy sheds light on the world of a genius.
