Loïe Fuller est née dans le grand ouest américain. Rien ne destine cette fille de ferme à devenir la gloire des cabarets parisiens de la Belle Epoque et encore moins à danser à l’Opéra de Paris. Cachée sous des mètres de soie, les bras prolongés de longues baguettes en bois, Loïe réinvente son corps sur scène et émerveille chaque soir un peu plus. Même si les efforts physiques doivent lui briser le dos, même si la puissance des éclairages doit lui brûler les yeux, elle ne cessera de perfectionner sa danse. Mais sa rencontre avec Isadora Duncan, jeune prodige avide de gloire, va précipiter la chute de cette icône du début du 20ème siècle

Interesting and based on a true story. Although I heard a lot on Isadora Duncan I was not familiar with this brilliant artist. Her creative movements and style were both captivating and breathtaking. I wish we could have seen more of her stage performances though.

Interesting film. Moves slowly through Fuller's life. Gives too much time to issues of sexuality and too little to her technical genius - new lighting techniques and chemical compounds needed to make her innovative special effects come to life. Movie would have been better with a broader focus on her life in France and its impact on the artistic community of her time. Toulouse Lautrec painted her ! Poets celebrated her. These parts of her life would have made the movie more interesting and taken us away from what becomes a repetitive cycle of rehearsals, performances, exhaustion, and bedroom scenes.
Depp's daughter (as Isadora Duncan) is beautiful. She lights up the screen in the many close-ups of the interesting angles of her face, but she falls a bit short in the acting department.

Watching all the beautiful things in life, tangible or intangible, along with Beethoven's 7th Symphony.

The beauty of this movie comes from watching a great performance by Gaspard Ulliel. He is quite a sight to watch in any film! The title character was a bit hard to stand for her self-absorbness.
