Björk is often credited for her strange style and unique music that their fans can’t get enough of. However, her artistic talent has many sides spanning multiple mediums. Bjork returned acting with Robert Eggers The Northmanbut the small role proves to be a real scene thief for the actor and makes you want more.
Björk has a limited filmography
The Northman It’s certainly not the first time Björk has impressed critics and audiences on screen. She has a long list of music-related credits, but few that relate to on-camera filmmaking. Björk made her first feature film debut in the 1990s The juniper tree. However, she really wowed audiences with her performance in the 2000s dancers in the dark. She next starred in 2005 Drawing restriction 9.
The guard reported that Björk stated she would never do another film after that Cooperation with Lars von Trier At dancers in the dark. She made a Facebook post detailing her negative experiences with him during the #MeToo movement. Björk claimed that von Trier committed “sexual harassment” during his interactions with her. He lashed out at the actor, calling her difficult to work with, including refusing to appear on set. Von Trier continues to deny any allegations of sexual harassment.
The Northman proves once again why the world needs more Björk on screen
The Northman tells the story of Price Amleth (Alexander Skarsgård) who is about to become a man. But everything changes when his uncle (Claes Bang) murders his father (Ethan Hawke). Björk plays the seer in it The Northmanwho reminds an adult Amleth of his promise to murder his uncle, avenge his father, and save his mother (Nicole Kidman).
The Seer is a small role, but she has a massive impact on multiple levels. The makeup and hairstyling, as well as the costume and wardrobe departments create a look that fits at the intersection of The Northman‘s Viking aesthetic and Björk’s stunning fashion style.
However, Björk also makes an impression in her own right thanks to her absolutely captivating, scene-stealing performance. She delivers the dialogue in a way that immediately draws the audience in. The role of Seer feels like it was made for Björk, which allows her to truly make the role her own.
Between The juniper tree and dancers in the darkThe actor shows an incredible range. The Northman further proves that Björk’s art is unusual, if notable. She can draw an audience in and get them to hold on to her every word in a way that feels effortless.
Björk has also helped compose the music in her films, which makes sense. This also adds a certain musicality to their performances, which is really mesmerizing. Björk has an extraordinary sense of accomplishment that has been stolen from the cinema world for far too long.
Björk almost won an Oscar in her famous swan dress
Björk received critical acclaim for her first two films. She was awarded Best Actress dancers in the dark at the Cannes Film Festival and an Oscar nomination for Best Music, Original Song for the song “I’ve Seen It All” from the same film.
The artist is the kind of performer who, with the right project at the right time, could easily win an Oscar among other prestigious awards. She certainly has the acting skills if she ultimately decides to return to acting.
Björk gave a stunning performance with her nominated song at the Academy Awards. She wore a swan dress This caused a stir at the award ceremony.
Björk has a longstanding friendship with Sjón, who was a co-writer The Northman, so it makes sense why she returned for Eggers’ film. However, there is no telling if she will decide to act again. Hopefully, for the benefit of audiences everywhere, she will return to the big screen at some point in the near future.
