Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Britain's Michael Powell, co-creator of the international success The Red Shoes (48), returns to the world of ballet for the Spanish/English coproduction Honeymoon. Prima ballerina Ludmilla Tcherina stars as an ex-dancer who marries Anthony Steel and heads to a new life in Spain. The call of her muse is strong indeed, as are the charms of a handsome male dancer (Antonio), and Ludmilla is sorely tempted to renounce her current existence and return to the ballet. The dramatic portion of the film is for the birds, but the two ballet highlights (from Los Amantes de Teruel and El Amor Brujo) are worth a few moment's attention. The original Spanish title of Honeymoon was Luna de Miel.
