This film by Paul Cox was probably shown in theatres, but I completely missed it if it was. It is now on DVD and I thought it was beautifully done. Derek Jacoby reads from the Diaries, while beautiful images of those wonderful familiar photographs of Nijinsky are shown. There are also excerpts from his ballets. I loved in particular the opening scene of a funeral cortege in a forest with a group of black-clad mourners following the casket (presumably carrying Nijinsky) and all the ballet characters he created are watching f rom the sidelines. The excerpts from his ballets are performed admirably by Australian dancers.
