Inspiration for BLACK SWAN came from Roman Polanski’s Repulsion

“Somebody I was living with had a psychotic breakdown,” says Black Swan co-writer Andres Heinz. He recalls it as a “horrifying experience,” one that he had to get down on paper. The result inspired Black Swan, the story of one ballerina’s perseverance to succeed  – no matter what it takes. Script sat down with the writer to learn how it took him ten years to go from script to screen with the Oscar-nominated film.

One thought on “Inspiration for BLACK SWAN came from Roman Polanski’s Repulsion

  1. Darren Aronofsky had to have been influenced by Michael Powell’s film, ‘The Red Shoes.’ There are too many similarities between the two films. I love ‘Black Swan’ but the dance sequences in ‘The Red Shoes’ are on a another level.
