Review
Selma is an immigrant factory worker in America, whose only form of escape is through the Hollywood musicals of old, her young son is going blind and she is struggling to scrape together enough money for an operation to reverse his condition; But Selma's grim existance is on an ever darker path and as her world escapes from her control it spirals into a relentless and unavoidably doomed finale. Visually stunning, surreal and unflinchingly tragic, Dancer In The Dark won the Palme D'or at Cannes and has never recieved anything other than a spirited response, you'll either find it repellently mawkish or a beautiful, emotionally traumatic masterpiece.
