Definition - What does Bolero mean?
Kinkly explains Bolero
Ravel’s piece featured prominently in a 1984 film, also called Bolero. The passionate nature of Ravel's music seemed an appropriate choice for the movie, which charted the sexual awakening of a young woman. The Motion Picture Association of America threatened to give the film an X rating if its explicit sex scenes were not cut. Rather than compromise his craft, writer and director John Derek instead chose to release it without a rating.
The film Bolero starred Bo Derek. It was not the first time Bo Derek engaged in on-screen sex to Ravel’s famous piece. "Bolero" was also the soundtrack for her famous film tryst with Dudley Moore in 10.
