  1. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    This film’s ugly, hand-held look is realistic, but doesn’t help in drama nor emotions. Breaking the Waves’ film-transferred-to-video-back-to-film dirtiness is far better. Aside from that, it’s melodrama, but it’s well-paced and the musical elements allow it, making it more creative. It’s also a musical that’s breaks into song-and-dance aren’t just as ungrounded as horror/sci-fi. It’s in her head as a means of escape.

    Esta es oficialmente la película que más me ha hecho llorar en mi vida y nunca la olvidaré ya que me hizo ver los intereses y la crueldad que hay detrás de las pena de muerte. Bjork hace una actuación espectacular donde en la primera mitad de la película nos enamora con su inocencia, haciendo que el final sea aún más duro.

    Gran musical, con un final tremendo, cuenta la historia de una nena que trabaja en una fábrica, está se está quedando ciega pero trabaja para poder sanar a su hijo, de la enfermedad de los ojos que padecen. La humanidad en su aspecto más asqueroso. Aprovecharse.

  4. Florian-mon's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Dancer in the Dark ist eine Tief Traurige und Erschütternde Geschichte, über Gerechtigkeit, dem Verlust der eigenen Träume und dem Wunsch, dass am Ende doch irgendwie die Hoffnung siegt. Es ist Traumhaft und bitter zu gleich und erschafft überträgt eine Intensive Gefühlswelt auf den Zuschauer, welcher am Abgrund steht und trotzdem noch mit einem Lächeln hinunter schaut.

    People don’t give enough credit to Björk, DAMN

  7. Charlie Douglas-Hamilton's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Dogme's anti-cinema produces the anti-musical. Bjork's fantastic in her role both singing and acting. By having tragedy be the focal point, it inverts our perceptions of Hollywood storytelling esp. in this form. So when its sadness feels over-the-top, I confront that I would not jump to critique as easily if the other way around. My only real gripe is some dialogue and singing voices. A clever formal experiment.

  8. erikdylansr's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Lars von Trier's Palme d'Or winning masterpiece will not leave anybody's cheek dry, yet its nihilism comes with a sense of optimism.

  9. Farah's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    just fucking heartbreaking

  10. Antonio León Medina's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Björk, let me thank you for this performance. You were such good, I like the way you make this fiction so real. The script was so close to reality that in a moment I wanted to cry because of his condition on jale. The film was many plot points that I couldnt hung out on a minute. Love this :D

  13. leonardo.moretto's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Consegui me conectar emocionalmente com o filme de uma forma rara. A atuação de Björk surpreende e a trilha sonora produzida por ela é estonteante e perfeita pra um filme musical, fora da zona de conforto do diretor.

    "Upon awakening from a dream"

  17. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    Cynical in intent & manipulative throughout, negative attributes of 'Dancer' are best illustrated by the prolonged suffering of Bjork, whose tortured performance as the central character was less "acted" than compelled through a mix of psychological abuse & manipulation. & yet the film remains a masterwork! A Brechtian deconstruction of the Hollywood musical that is genuinely experimental but also genuinely humanist.

  19. Simone Berlioz's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    No soy de amar musicales, pero Bjork, simplemente me rompio el corazón en esta película. Con rabia, sencilla, hermosa y dolorosa, un mix de emociones para ponerte analizar y sentirte desvastado al final.

  20. Spezialle_K's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    One of my favourite directors and my favourite solo musician come together in one of the most powerful and beautiful artistic creations of all time. In my top 3 and quite possibly my favourite film of all time. I cannot put into words how much I love this.

  21. leonordbatista's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    O meu primeiro filme do Lars Von Trier foi uma experiência cinematográfica peculiar. Nunca um filme me tinha causado tanto sofrimento, intensificando o sentimento de injustiça, que dançam no escuro, e ninguém vê

  22. cristodicarta's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

  23. sanqfroid's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    A proletariat deconstruction of life through the charade of Hollywood musicals, centring on a female migrant worker whose disability and social class disavow her the happy ending intended through her labour and envisioned through the American dream. The film is, as David Stratton said, an "anti-musical" but tragedy underscores its cruel art. It's unlike anything I've ever seen and Björk's performance it its heart.

  24. Fernanda Patlán's rating of the film Dancer in the Dark

    What a rollercoaster of emotions I just went through.
