This film biography of 19th-century French dancer and choreographer Marius Petipa plays out like a tear-jerking melodrama. Petipa (Gilles Segal) signs on with the Russian Ballet and becomes known as the father of modern ballet. Much ado is made about the combining of Petipa and Tchaikovsky and the fruits of their collaborations.
