Dancer in the Dark is one of the most emotionally raw and heartbreaking films I have ever seen. At the same time, it is beautiful in its unwavering glimpse into sorrow and survival and the small, hopeful moments that can come within tragedy. The score itself is magical and moving and Bjork gives a totally 110% performance.

I loved it! Mys sister told me it was an excellent, emotionally-charged movie. And, she was absolutely correct. Of course, David Morse does usually make good movies. This one makes me want to watch more Catherine Deneuve movies. I wonder if Bjork has made any other movies.

One of most emotionally powerful and innovative movies of all time and certianly my vote for best musical ever. If only more people had the guts to make a film like this than the cinema world would be a much better one.

I still remember with pain when Bjork lost the Oscar. This movie contains maybe the most powerful performance by a woman ever. Trier's aesthetic concept is always good. I like him. I like how he uses the camera, the lighting. This movie also contains an awesome script that speaks about the human condition. It's a very tough movie, depressing at momments, but at the same time, full of hope. A Masterpiece.

Dancing Queen

Dancer in the Dark is a brilliant film in which a very young Leonardo DiCaprio plays a young woman who is trying to save money for her son's fast approaching eye opera--...Folks, I am now being told that it was not Leonardo DiCaprio, but that it was Bjork who was the leading lady. I feel less awkward being attracted to her now.

In all seriousness, I really enjoyed this film. Bjork's contribution to the film, which included an amazing soundtrack as well as a resonating performance, was what made the film. The supporting cast and story were at best, marginal, but they were held up by the strength of Bjork's, "in your face!", acting and Trier's decisions behind the camera. The hand held camera could be nauseating at times, but the grandiose, yet simple, musical numbers keep you hung...

I kinda loved it.
and im still not sure if I sould be ashamed or proud of it.
I, personally love Björk & her music, I thought her acting was surpriningly good, not great, but good.
I was expecting a freaky-weird-trainwreck, but there was emotion, & darkness, & power.
idk, I just have a warped ming like that I guess.

I actually really liked this movie. Bjork, yeah she's quirky but the story was very well written. You could see just how behind the 8 ball her character was throughout the movie. If you can get past a couple flaws...good to go.
