We begin our story with Princess Aurore, living happily with her brother, Solal, and her parents the King and Queen. Aurore loves to dance, despite the fact that it is forbidden in the kingdom, and she seizes every opportunity to follow do so. As the unexpected secret behind the dancing ban unfolds, the King’s greedy advisor persuades him that he must marry Aurore off to a rich prince. A series of balls are set up to allow the young royals to get to know each other, despite the fact that Aurore’s heart belongs to another. Documentary maker Tavernier successfully turns his hand to fiction in this original and beautifully crafted tale of purity, trust and regret. The ball sequences are particularly outstanding.
