It is also a remake of the 1977 Italian film of the same name.

The film follows Susie Bannion (Johnson), a young American ballet dancer who travels to the Marcus Academy of Dance, a prestigious European school in Berlin. There, artistic director Madame Blanc (Swinton) is impressed by her dancing skills.

She later added: “Sometimes I find that when I'm working on a project, and I'm not ashamed of that, I'm a very penetrating person and I absorb a lot of other people's emotions. Sometimes when you're working with dark material, you can get stuck in it, and then have a nice conversation with someone about it.” It is a very nice way to move forward after a project.
