La Danseuse est un film français réalisé par Stéphanie Di Giusto, présenté au Festival de Cannes 2016 (sélection Un certain regard). Annonçant « d'après une histoire vraie », ce film est librement inspiré du roman Loïe Fuller, danseuse de la Belle Époque de Giovanni Lista, un historien et critique d’art spécialiste de la culture artistique des années 1920.

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

Synopsis

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.

Although encouraged by his friends, who hail him as a talented rap music artist, Jimmy worries about his potential as a musician, particularly due to his lack of confidence.

In the era of Mao's Cultural Revolution, 11-year-old Chinese boy Li Cunxin resides in a rural village commune in Shandong Province, destined to labour in the fields. As often occurred in those times, government officials fanning out across the nation seeking young candidates for centralized training arrive at this school. At first bypassed but selected after a plea by his teacher during the school visit, Li seems bewildered although piqued by the gruff preliminary inspection screening at the provincial capital city of Qingdao. Forwarded to a Beijing audition for a place in Madame Mao's Dance Academy, he is admitted for ballet training based on a series of physique and flexibility examinations.

The film suggests Nijinsky was driven into madness by both his consuming ambition and self-enforced heterosexuality. He became involved with Romola de Pulszky, a society girl who joined impresario Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes specifically to seduce Nijinsky. After a series of misunderstandings with Diaghilev, who is both his domineering mentor and possessive lover, Nijinsky succumbs to Romola's charms and marries her. After this, his gradual decline from artistic moodiness to a diagnosis of schizophrenia begins.
