Jeg dig elsker

Ulrik Wivel, Denmark, 2005

24 min.DK/Documentary

The ballet »La Sylphide« is August Bournonville''s only tragedy, and Wivel''s inspiration for the film, »I You Love«.The film tells the story of a young man who runs away on his wedding day, follows his passion and accepts the consequences. In this chamber play of dance we experience the main character, James, his beloved sylph and their inner and outer resistance personified in the witch. The director of the ballet, played by dancer Nikolaj Hübbe, stages the drama for us. Through his experience with the role of James and direct access to the language of ballet, a world is created around the lovers in relation to the dramatic dimensions of the tale.
