  1. It’s one of my favorite films, I’ve seen it like a thousand time and I want the same paper wall than Billy!

  2. I watched this movie during the summer holidays and I really liked it, it’s a very good movie !

  3. I totally agree with Bénédicte, for the film AND the wallpaper ! I really like it because it mentions the fact that men’s position in ballet is not really easy and most of the time they suffer from stereotypes…
