La Danseuse est un film français réalisé par Stéphanie Di Giusto, présenté au Festival de Cannes 2016 (sélection Un certain regard).

Nommé six fois aux César, le film reçoit celui des meilleurs costumes.


Loïe Fuller (Soko) est une jeune Américaine vivant seule avec son père dont le seul horizon est celui des ranchs et les seules relations des cowboys frustes. Elle dessine ses rêves d'une autre vie. La mort brutale de son père la décide à changer le cours de sa sordide existence. Après un séjour houleux auprès de sa mère dans une institution religieuse, elle part à Paris et invente un nouveau style de danse réinventant l'utilisation du costume dans la chorégraphie. Elle fait un parcours éblouissant, mais sa rencontre avec Isadora Duncan (Lily-Rose Depp) va bouleverser sa vie. Elle éprouve pour celle-ci une attirance passionnée et va la propulser sur le devant de la scène, au détriment de sa propre carrière.

In 1927, Isadora Duncan has become a legend as the innovator of modern dance, a temperamental bohemian, and an outspoken advocate of free love. Now past 40, she lives in poverty in a small hotel on the French Riviera with her companion Mary Estelle Dempsey/Mary Desti (named only as Mary in the film) and her secretary Roger, to whom she is dictating her memoirs. As a young girl in California, Isadora first demonstrates her disdain for accepted social standards by burning her parents' marriage certificate and pledging her dedication to the pursuit of art and beauty. In 1896, she performs under the name of Peppy Dora in a rowdy music hall in Chicago and publicly embarrasses the theatre manager into paying her $300 so that she can take her family to England. Modeling her free-form style of dance and costume after Greek classicism, she rapidly acquires international acclaim.

Lully (Boris Terral) starts to gain the favour of the 14-year-old King Louis in 1653 by giving him specially designed shoes for Ballet de la Nuit. His subsequent rise draws hostility from the old cadres of the court, particularly the royal composer Cambert (Johan Leysen). However, following Cardinal Mazarin's death, Louis (Benoît Magimel) installs himself in full power as the king in 1661 and he is now at stake with the religious establishment created and controlled by his mother Anne of Austria (Colette Emmanuelle) at the Palais-Royal. On the other hand, Lully's animosity with Cambert comes to a novel dimension after Cambert's mistress Madeleine Lambert (Cécile Bois), the daughter of Michel Lambert, marries Lully in 1662. Lully and another Versailles favourite Molière (Tchéky Karyo) are keen to further disarm the old court but they get to understand their limits when conflict becomes more manifest at events such as staging (and consequent ban) of Tartuffe in 1664. Meanwhile, the passing years bring an end to Lully's position as the king's dance teacher and choreographer and he also has to face the emotional tensions growing with his wife's niece Julie (Claire Keim), which will culminate at the gala of Cambert's Pomone in 1671.
