The final entry in Michael Powell's famous cycle of ballet films, this rarely-seen English/Spanish co-production reunites Powell with alumni from both The Red Shoes and Oh... Rosalinda!!, with Ludmilla Tcherina and Léonide Massine starring alongside world-renowned Flamenco dancer Antonio and English leading man Anthony Steel.

Featuring breathtakingly beautiful imagery of Spain, shot in Technicolor and Technirama by Oscar-winning cinematographer Georges Perinal, and ballet scores conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham, the film was released in Europe in 1959 as Luna de Miel and in Britain three years later as Honeymoon. It is presented here in its longest-possible form as a brand-new remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Kit and Anna, a rich and happy couple, are touring sunny Spain in an open-top Bentley on their fabulous honeymoon. But Anna is a prima ballerina who has forgone her career for marriage – a situation that the fiery Spanish dancer Antonio finds intolerable!
