Dancer in the Dark

Dancer in the Dark

A Feature film by Lars Von Trier

Release in France : 18/10/2000

    Synopsis

    Selma is a Czech immigrant a single mother working in a factory in rural America. Her salvation is her passion for music, specifically, the all-singing, all-dancing numbers found in classic Hollywood musicals. Selma harbours a sad secret: she is losing her eyesight and her son Gene stands to suffer the same fate if she can't put away enough money to secure him an operation. When a desperate neighbour falsely accuses Selma of stealing his savings, the drama of her life escalates to a tragic finale.
