backtrack; Dancer in the dark (2000)

Tragic and uplifting at the same time, this might be Lars von Trier’s most touching moment. A sad saga of sacrifice where good-hearted, wondrously different Björk outshines everyone in her only major feature length starring role so far.

Immensely sentimental and unrealistic. Definitely in my book of unconventional musicals.
