:P I have seen mentioned on the Net that this is to be on France 3, 2nd March 2010.

There is also a very intertesting interview and lots of pictures on L'Express Styles,Fr, "Aurelie Dupont Le Belle Etoile"which has also got a translation possibility there into English. Aurelie tells of her recent pregnancy and her little boy Jacques as well as how she got back to "The Scene". The interview and pages (15)add up to quite a lot to read.

Thank you very much Estelle for posting the links to Aurelie's Interview and pictures, I always seem to get it wrong when I try to do it!!!! She seems a lovely person, so down to earth and happy to share her experiences. I did meet her briefly after Onegin last year.

The documentary will soon be available for sale:

It was broadcasted on TV last week, and I haven't like it at all. It's just too much common, and uninteresting.

I was quite disapointed too. It's just made of bits and pieces of small talk plus some rehearsal scenes which, as interesting as they might be, bring nothing new on Aurélie. On the whole it lacks feeling and vision.

For all of us who can't watch French television, you can find the entire documentary on Youtube in 8 parts! But be warned: there are no subtitles and some of the footage in the rehearsal studio isn't miked making it difficult to hear and understand Aurelie Dupont and other dancers.

While I enjoyed this backstage glimpse of Dupont, my favorite Paris Opera etoile, I find it hard to believe that Cedric Klapisch followed her around for three years and only came up with 58 minutes of footage! It also wasn't clear to me why Klapisch had chosen Dupont or chosen to make a documentary about a dancer at all. For contrast, I reflected upon two dance films I've seen recently, "La Danse " and "The Dancer". Frederick Wiseman voyeuristically examined the entire mechanism of the Paris Opera in "La Danse" and in the Swedish film, a theatre actor tries to understand Katja Bjorner's art and dedication through the lens of his own art. It just semed to me that Klapisch's goals were very unclear. Reservations aside, any chance for an audience to see classical dance on television is a good thing. Imagine if Kathryn Bigelow or Noah Baumbach decided to make a documentary about Ashley Bouder or Gillian Murphy!

This documentary is available on YouTube either in parts, or complete at this link:

I didn't notice any particular improvement in quality in the sectioned version VS the complete version.
