Lennart Pasborg, Denmark, 2000

42 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

If anyone asked how Erik Bruhn was feeling, he often replied "I am the same, only more", a statement typical of his way of thinking. He has been called one of the greatest dancers of our time. Through his dancing he sought to express himself more than merely physically and emotionally; he aimed for the unattainable, and strove for transcendence to the spiritual. The film director Lennart Pasborg was one of his close friends, and with insight and empathy his film explores a man, a dancer, who so much wanted the divine that it was painful.
