This is more like a literary short story with video, as nothing is resolved and no one changes. But it's beautiful and a great look inside the backstage of a ballet / modern dance company, with some of the most beautiful choreography (the dancer and the swing alone is worth the cost).

I love ballet! I love good dance in general. So watching Robert Altman's "The Company" was 112 minutes of pure bliss. Altman takes us onstage, and off-stage, for a look at the world of dance, dancers, choreographers, set and costume designers and a ballet director, Alberto Antonelli, played wonderfully well by Malcolm McDowell. Actress Neve Campbell, best known for her roles in horror flicks, was trained for years in classical ballet. She is absolutely beautiful, and an extraordinarily lithe, exciting dancer. (No more scary movies Neve!!). It is obvious that she has put a lot of herself into this film. Not only does she play a major role, but she co-wrote and co-produced the movie. She did all of her own dancing, and seems to fit right in with the professional dancers from the Joffrey Ballet Troupe of Chicago, which is featured here.
The film is loosely structured and documentary-like. The viewer gets a a fly on the wall look at a dancer's life as Altman takes us behind the scenes, up close and personal. We watch both the professional and personal - from the grueling physical toll of constant practice to brilliant performances. The dancers' effort to perfect their mastery of dance is totally honest, and this artistic honesty really makes the film as special as a live performance. There are some spectacular dance performances throughout, with splendid colors, electric energy, creative costumes, and wonderful footwork which showcase the Joffrey Ballet Company. There's an opening modern piece where dancers leap across the stage with streamers, that is just fabulous. In another sequence a ballerina dances on and around a swing. Altman's camera emphasizes her grace and elegance, and this is one of the movie's high points for me.

First of all, let me make one thing perfectly clear. I am not a big fan of dance in general and ballet particularly. Next, there is essentially no story in this movie--it's more of a documentary style look at how dance productions are put together. With all that, I loved this movie. I was totally swept up with the dance numbers which are extremely creative and haunting and fun to watch. In addition, Malcolm MacDowell is wonderful as that crusty genius who runs the show. He is absolutely convincing. I was fascinated watching the performances rehearsed and how they went from choosing the dancers to the final spectacle on the stage. If you appreciate art at all and are fascinated at what it takes to expose yourself as an artist on the stage, I highly, highly recommend this film. Robert Altman continues to amaze. Bravo!

First of all, this is not a plotted movie about the life of a dancer, although it pivots around a central character named Ry (Neve Campbell), a rising dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago. Rather, what Altman attempts to do is to convey a dancer's milieu--the physical pressures, the competitiveness, and the sheer joy of dancing. The dancing sequences are spectacular--Altman appreciates and savors each of them, without doing any heavily MTV-esque editing.
If you like Robert Altman, odds are good you will enjoy this film, although it is lighter on character development than much of his other work. If you are a serious fan of dance, you will enjoy this film for the attention it pays to the beauty of the art form. If you want a plot, particularly a standard love affair between Ry and her chef beau (James Franco), look elsewhere.

I really couldn't come to care for any of the characters in this movie. The ballet is beautiful, especially the group performances. However, the actors failed to draw me in. This movie is just okay, nothing special. If you missed it, that's okay. Just rent it and fast forward to all the group performances and u won't be missing much.

Well, it had to happen eventually. A Robert Altman film I truly dislike. I get the impression this ballet company film was way scaled down from a bloated romantic script and consequently we're left with the bare bones of cliched situations and characters, who instead of executing their expectant behavior, manage to do nothing at all. I'm glad that the kid ballet guy with no place to sleep didn't end up hanging from a rope, and that the young star's choice of a common Romeo type over a dashing prancer didn't cause her starry-eyed Mother to rebel, but why ignite these flames at all just to see them die down to a warm but lifeless ember? The love story aspect was particularly insulting, just short of Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw catching snowflakes with their tongues. Be it a ballet company stage or a common office, this film only proves that most of us have a pretty dull day.

This movie is about a ballet dancer, played by Neve Campbell, who wants to be noticed for her talent by her school. The acting was pretty good and the sets were artistic and original, but this is the movie that just was. It doesn't really go anywhere or have much of a point, but there are some lovely moments.
