Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Graced with a particular genius for absorbing the past to suggest an exciting cinematic future. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

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

Rotten: So exasperating in its contradictions, so frustrating in its fakery, so deeply irritating in its pretensions, it's frankly hard to know where to begin to dissect it. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 28, 2006

Fresh: Dancer is like no other movie around. Shot in bleached-out video colors in rough, hand-held style, the film is at once aggressively modern and deliberately, melodramatically, old-fashioned. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Mar 6, 2018

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!
