Last night I finally got around to watching Dancer in the Dark. Almost regretted it, the movie is so heartbreaking. And beautiful in that Lars von Trier way. Only he could make Catherine Deneuve look so homely.

Bj÷rk did a fantastic job, being both very Bj÷rky and Norma Rae. She's like the anti-Madonna; equally creative and aggressive, but with talent.

If you like von Trier and the Dogme 95 thing make sure to see The Celebration (Festen) by Thomas Vinterburg.
