Storyline

This is a documentary included on the Dancer in the Dark DVD. It explains the complicated process that utilized 100 cameras(or eyes) to capture as many possible angles at one time. By using this proces, Lars was able to create a "live" feeling to the film, especially in the non-musical parts. This process was invented by Lars von Trier and his crew and is entirely exclusive to this film. This documentary also reveals what Lars feels were the successes and the failures of using this technique. Written by Brian Franz <mahaloth@aol.com>

A tantalising glimpse..
15 January 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This doco is the most interesting of 'making of' doco's that I've seen yet. However on the downside we don't get into too much depth as has been stated previously when a bit more probing into the making of a Von Trier film would have been invaluable to someone like myself that is keen on learning the ropes in the independent film making industry. I would love to have seen more of Von Trier in action as a Director rather than as a clown. Also Barr, Deneuve and Bjork at work. We have some remarkable talent in this one film (Dancer) and I can only view this doco as a wasted opportunity. What about some focus on Bjork writing her music and/or rehearsing in the studio? Von Trier directing and Deneuve discussing her role with her director? There is a million things we could have had but didn't. Very tantalising doco that doesn't deliver, but intriguing nevertheless. I view it as worth seeing and gave it a high score, but I was still disappointed. There could have been more.
