The third film in Lars von Trier’s Golden Heart Trilogy after ‘Breaking the Waves’ (1996) and ‘The Idiots’ (1998), this musical-drama centres on Selma, a Czech immigrant to the US, who seeks refuge from life’s hardships in classic Hollywood musicals. Its soundtrack was written mainly by Björk, with contributions from Mark Bell and lyrics by von Trier and Sjón. Premiering at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, the film was awarded the Palme d’Or, along with the Best Actress award for Björk.
