Neneh Superstar isn’t just a cinematic triumph; it’s a work of art that pushes boundaries and dismantles preconceptions.

- Dance Life Australia

This inspiring family-friendly film resonates with everyone who has ever refused to compromise their dreams and stood up against those who said no. Set within one of France’s most prestigious cultural institutions – the Paris Opera Ballet School – 12-year-old ballet dancer Neneh discovers that her extraordinary natural talent and focused discipline may not be enough to win the approval of the school’s harsh and discriminatory headmistress, Marianne Belage.

Not only is our heroine from a socially-disadvantaged background, but she is also black, challenging the longstanding dominance of white dancers in classical ballet.

Newcomer Oumy Bruni Garrel is a revelation as Neneh, portraying the young ballerina with dignity and grace. The film also stars Maïwenn (director and star of Jeanne du Barry, AF FFF24), delivering a formidable portrayal of the ex-star ballerina turned headmistress.

Neneh Superstar, while being a glorious celebration of talent and perseverance, serves as a timely reminder that prejudice remains a significant barrier for many. This charming feel-good film is a must-see for families and ballet enthusiasts of all ages.
