2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ted on April 20 2004
Format: DVD
This review is for the Criterion Collection DVD edition of the film.
This film is well known and the first technicolor film about ballet. It is based loosely on the Hans Christian Andersen tale of the same name. In this version, a ballerina with great potential is forced to make a decision between her promising career and her lover. The film has a famous 15 minute ballet sequence that has been adored throughout the ages.
The DVD includes the following special features.
A slide show of martin scorsese's collection of lobby cards related to the film.
Theatrical trailer
Slide show of publicity and production photos
series of paintings with alternate angle shot that has side by side comparisons between the ballet sequence with the storyboard paintings.
a partial Powell & Pressburger filmography with photos and clips of some of their films. (some of which were subsequently released by Criterion Collection
full length audio commentary
audio of Jeremy Irons reading the Andersen tale and excerpts of film novelization by Powell & Pressburger.
The films of Powell & Pressburger have been imitated many times by modern filmmakers and this isno exception.
a must for ballet enthusiasts and Criterion fans.

Short and sweet. The restoration work on this movie is simply astounding! It looks like it was made yesterday...only better...because of the beautiful 3 strip Technicolor hues that you never see any more. The picture is sharp as a tack. The sound is also good, although not to the same level as the picture, given the limitations of the day. I have never been as "crazy" about The Red Shoes as some people. However, after reading so many positive comments about this Blu-Ray I decided I had to finally purchase it and am very glad it did. If you want to see what Technicolor was in its glory, then this is the film for you. If you want to see what sort of restoration work is possible on a classic film, then this is the movie for you. Needless to say, if you are a fan or the film, do not hesitate.

Format: DVD
I think this movie really is in a league of its own. The story, ballet scenes, music, acting are all great. I've read some reviews regarding the quality of the picture. Criterion did a wonderful job restoring the picture. The picture quality is amazing and there aren't any scratches or dust particles that show up on the screen.

There's a little sticker shock, but definately worth it. And it includes a whole bunch of extras. The film really is a gem in my eyes, and I recommend it to film buffs everywhere.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a DVD release of a movie that was originally filmed in 1948. "The Red Shoes" is about a ballet company owned by Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook) He discovers a unknown composer, Julian Craster (Marius Goring), and a new leading ballerina, Victoria Page (Moira Shearer), to play the lead in a new ballet called "The Red Shoes". This is basically the oft repeated story of joyous success and love followed by separation and tragedy.

Whether you like this movie or not will depend on what you are looking for. If you wanted a show of some historical significance that was considered a ground-breaking achievement at its time, then this may be a show that you will really enjoy. To a movie-buff/collector this would probably be looked upon as an archival gem.

If, you are looking for great acting then I'd advise you to spend your money elsewhere. The plot is not bad, but, really, the acting by today's standards is mediocre at best, although there is some good dancing in this show by Ms. Shearer.

All in all, an expensive DVD. Not what I was looking for. I hope these comments will be useful to you if you are considering purchasing this disc.

By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER on Oct. 16 2010
Format: DVD
The Russian ballet has come to town and due to circumstance; a student Julian Craster (Marius Goring) becomes a brilliant composer. An orphan Victoria Page (Moira Shearer) protected by a patron of the arts has an opportunity to become a great dancer. Neither the composer nor the dancer wants anything more. Together under the direction of the company owner Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook), they create the perfect ballet "The Red Shoes".

The story of the ballet is base on a story of Hans Christian Anderson. It is about a girl infatuated with a par of dancing shoes. She places them on her feet. Moreover, begins dancing. When she tires, the shoes insist on dancing g and do so through time until her demise. You will find that there is more depth to the story than just a real life reflection of Anderson's story.

The only requirement of the company owner is that everyone focuses on their career and not fall in love. When the ballerina and the composer do just that, it raises the ire of the company owner. He forms a scheme to what end?

This film is an Archer film and holds true to the quality and entertainment value. I suggest you watch the Criterion version. There is a 19194 voice over commentary, by film historian Ian Christie with interviews of Marius Goring, Moira shearer, Jack Cardiff, Brian Easdale, and Martin Scorsese.

There is also a voice over reading of the Powell and Pressburger novelization of "The Red Shoes".

The Criterion version did not clean up all the film scratches. If this hits Blu-ray, I hope they will leave in all the criterion extras but clean up the scratches.
