Goofs

While at the Breton bar in Paris, the 'Gwenn ha du' flag is shown. But it was only created in 1923 (and became popular from the 1970s on). If a Breton flag had to be put up at the end of the 19th century, it'd have been the 'Kroaz du' or the plain ermine flag. See more »

Quotes

Felicie: [to Victor, about the Irish bar] I LOVE it here! Let's party!
[starts to dance on the tables]
Victor: [shouting over the music] I'll bet you Rudy would never bring you here!
[He chuckles and Felicie continues to dance around the bar]
Bar patrons: Yeah! Wow! Look at her go!
Victor: [impressed] Wow!
[to a man at the bar]
Victor: That's my girlfriend!
Man at bar: [chuckles] Does SHE know that?

Ballerina is a great animation film
26 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ballerina is a great french-Canadian animation film about 2 waifs who escape their orphanage and go to Paris to reach their dreams & never give up, Félicie (Elle Fanning) with a passion a natural talent for dance & Victor (Dane Dehaan) an inventor. Beautiful music, landscapes & sceneries, a Belle Époque tale that involves the construction of the Eiffel Tower & the Statue of Liberty. A kindly maid & a distinguished professor manage her to succeed. A movie for the whole family.
