Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Aims right for the heart and aces its target. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: The crazy thing is that, sarcastic as Dancer is, it actually works as an anti-capital- punishment tract. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Much of it comes across as a giant, misshapen ego trip. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It smashes down the walls of habit that surround so many movies. It returns to the wellsprings. It is a bold, reckless gesture. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

I love this movie but its so sad

Dancer in the Dark

A most unusual movie, perfectly cast, that tugs at your heart and does not let go. Bjork and Catherine Deneuve are excellent!

Amazing Movie!

Be prepared to cry... A lot. So good though!
