Verry uncanny. A look into the situations of life's ordeals. A beautiful ending. I had originally rented this movie at blockbusters and later bought a copy at tower records in the village NYC. The last copy (vhs) was just sitting there waiting for me.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Bjork (best singer ever)gives a captivating performance as selma.This movie draws you in from beginning to end, you cant leave your tv! The songs in the movie are haunting a release a poignant message to its audience!!!The end of the movie follows you around for days... you'll never forget it!!You must see this movie!! you'll love it!!

The bad guy gets away with it, the good guy loses, and along the way Bjork breaks out into song. Though this film is emotionally painful to watch at times with things going from bad to worse for Selma, it ultimately, as a film-going experience, is completely satisfying. Its decidedly un-Hollywood ending is wrenching and yet, even while you hold your head in your hands wishing it had all turned out differently for Selma, you know, deep down, that this is the ''right'' ending for such a brave cinematic journey. I wish Hollywood had the guts to pull this off.

Dancer in the Dark is a perfect title for the movie, for it is a noir mystery of how a life can take it toll on people. This move quenches the intellectual mind. It veers away from today's pop culture to make a modern day masterpiece. Björk give a tremendous performance which got her BEST FEMALE PERFORMANCE in THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL and if that is not enough the film won the PALME D'OR (CANNES' version of best film). The film also incorporates Björk's beautiful music which gives the film it uniqueness. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS FILM...

It's so dark, so touching, so well acted, so original and so depressing... One of the best movies of the past year. If you haven't seen it, you're missing something great and unique.

After I have watched this movie;Dancer In The Dark,it took me several hours to recover from the depression which the tragic last scene gave to me.I found it hard for me to sympathize with the miserable heroine.Moreover I couldn't catch the main idea of this movie well.They wanted to tell us that life is difficult and nothing can resist our cruel fate,didn't they?Musics can't help us,and even friendship or love can't either.I would like to recommend this movie only to very serious people who want to consider the meaning of life or why all the people can't live together happily.The musics and the pictures at some scenes are beautiful.I like them.But on the whole,total impression is too gloomy.This is the last movie you should watch when you want to get relaxed.

Bjork was so enchanting during this performance that I was arrested to every minute of it. I have never seen anyone give themselves to a role so completely as she did, and the result is shatteringly amazing. It's not only a savage tear-jearker, though: it has its own share of charming playfulness and sombre beauty, too. The music is wonderfully whimsical and, Bjork being Bjork, totally unique. You've never seen anything like this.

Bjork is a real star and she is able to play Selma's character very well so real, so smooth and she won cannes anyway. Bjork is very unique and she is total to her job. She is the best. So what are you waiting for? Buy now!

I felt some confusion initially but then I got sucked in and couldnt turn it off. Call me girlie but I cried and I wasnt shopping for emotions. First time exposure to her music - Im hooked.

No movie in my life has ever affected me so emotionally. Truly outstanding performances by every cast member. Bjork made me fall in love with mousy Selma and cry for hours. As tragic as it gets, however, it left me with a good, albeit intense, feeling. Fantastic direction, dramatic abandon. Buy this movie!

''Dancer in the Dark'' is a fabulous movie. Bjork has such a unique voice, and the way the music scenes were done were just as unique -- all in her head except for one of them. It was a heart-breaking, poignent movie, and only further showed that the death penality is a unjust punishment. Every actor in the movie does an outstanding job of fully developing the characters. The camera work, although at first seeming unusual, works soooo well for this film. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It stirred up emotions that needed to be stirred, and it came across with a very evident message. I would suggest it to anyone.

A film I always hoped to see in the cinema but only finally caught on DVD. I could kick myself for letting that happen, as I inadvertently deprived myself of viewing one of the best films I have ever seen. Bjork is exceptional, the plot is a real life twist on a fairy tale and the presentation is stupendous. Painful to watch at times, yes, but those with a brain and a heart will cry and cheer at its conclusion.

dang - this movie straight rocked. whether you're a fan of Bjork's music or not, you will appreciate the passion and sympathy she evokes as the movie's star - Selma. when the movie ends, and the credits begin to roll in silence, you'll hear more than a few sniffles from around the room - probably some outright bawiling. this film was incredibly touching and speaks volumes about how much love this woman has for her son. Selma stands as a shining, altruistic, rough edged example of the type of love that should exist more often in our world. i saw it thrice in the theater and have already preordered the video. -ian
