It is a very intriguing and mesmerising movie all round with great performances, fantastic cinematography and great direction.
Although at first i wasn't sure if i wanted to watch this movie as it is about ballet even if it is a psychological thriller, however it truly won me over, i think Natalie Portman delivers a stunning and top of the form performance that is truly worthy of the oscar.
She certainly delivers a fantastic performance that could possibly persuade me to go and see and actual ballet production.
The storyline and script are beautifully written and is a very interesting concept that i very much enjoyed.
The story of a ballet dancer striving for perfection but also needing to find that balance between perfection and relaxing so that the emotion of the dance comes through in the dance. I liked that the story concentrated on the difficulty of striving for that perfection when competing against other determined/driven dancers. It really is a great psychological thriller that has a border line between sanity and insanity.
A very good movie and does have its moments of pure horror as well!
I loved the final scene from where the white swan turns into its opposite and becomes the black, i thought that Natalie Portman did an excellent and exhilarirating performances that i didnt think that you could actually pick on the change between the white swan who is a kind of conscientous, timid and frigid kind of character whereas the black swan is the alto ego of letting go and becoming an intense and maybe scary character and Portman gives and portrays that performance beautifully in that one dance.
Very well down and really worth the watch even if you aren't a ballet fan.
