Movie Review by Movie Addict
November 28th, 2008

Favorite Movie Quote: "They say it's the last song. They don't know us, you see. It's only the last song if we let it be."

You can't get that picture of her swan dress out of your mind as you contemplate Björk in this film. It doesn't take long to realize that this is a dark trip that will not have a happy ending.

Björk was incredible as a mother losing her sight and doing everything to get an operation for her son. The darkness that was creeping in was only broken by her fantasies that included several musical and dancing numbers.

Reality intruded on her plans in the form of David Morse ("John Adams" "House"), a cop whose personal problems caused her to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her son.

Catherine Deneuve as her BFF, and Peter Stormare (Fargo, Chocolat) added to the thrill, as did a brief appearance by Joel Grey.

An outstanding drama/fantasy that was an excellent surprise.

Bjork was simply amazing in this film. She deserved all the recognition & should've received atleast an Oscar nomination for her her flawless performance. Great film!
