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 process, 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>

One of the best behind-the-scenes
31 May 2002 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Most behind of the scenes are really most about saying how fun it was to do the movie, and say how much they love one-another. But this is not like that. Far from it. It shows how much work it has taken to do this movie. Mostly because Bjork and Lars Von Trier didn't work together well.

It's quite funny that Bjork has been credited as being in this documentary, because as it tells in the end, Bjork asked the director if she could be taken out of this, and she was. You only see her in one clip, and that is far from a closeup, hehe.

You should see this if you liked the movie, and want some background information. But mostly, you get more information about Dancer in the Dark by listening to director's comments track on the DVD. I gave it 8, for not being one of those pat-on-the-back behind-the-scenes.
