Lars von Trier's Dancer In The Dark was awarded the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2000, while Björk was awarded Best Actress. Trier filmed a single dance scene using 100 cameras, hence the title of this film about the filming of the double winner at Cannes, and about the pain that may well be a condition for producing great art.
