Synopsis

Based on the real-life pursuit of a group of guerrillas in Peru, The Dancer Upstairs follows the trail of destruction left by a terrorist known as Ezequiel - a shadowy figure who strikes at random. Augustin Rejas (superbly played by Javier Bardem) is the cop assigned to track him down. The mammoth search that follows is one filled with fear and confusion - not least after Rejas' discovery that he has fallen in love with his daughter's ballet teacher: the dancer upstairs.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
