    Stunning, and emotionally oppressive and incredibly haunting by the end.

    quote:
    Björk has to be the worst singer in history. My ears literally bled.

    Bjork is easily one of the most talented musical artists today with such a strong voice and wide vocal range. Maybe you'll come to enjoy her some day. I sure did.

    Really hard to watch for those who don't like sad stories and injustice. Beautiful sad story, great acting especially from Bjork that fits perfectly with the character. Different indeed but different is good.

    Her life is tough, but she survives because she has a secret. When things become too difficult, she pretends she's in a musical just for a minute or two.
    All the joy that life can't give her that's where she finds.
    But joy ain't life, the joy is there so we can bear life.
