About the Movie
From acclaimed director Lars von Trier comes the most stunning and compelling film of the year. Winner of the European Film Award for Best Film and the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress (Kirsten Dunst), MELANCHOLIA is a beautiful film about the end of the world. Justine (Kirsten Dunst, SPIDER-MAN) and Michael (TRUE BLOOD's Alexander Skarsgard) are celebrating their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of her sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg, ANTICHRIST), and brother-in-law John (Kiefer Sutherland, 24). Despite Claire's best efforts, the wedding is a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. And as Claire tries to maintain the party's celebratory spirit, Justine struggles against her own dark demons. Meanwhile, a planet called Melancholia is heading directly towards Earth...
I didnt like it. made no sense. The beginning went on forever. Shot movie
Beautiful psychological and disturbing.
A beautiful movie about the end of the world. This is the tagline that summarises 'Mlancholia'.
Lars Von Triers' psychological expression on the nature and mystery of Depression is relevant to an audience who can understand its power and Romanticism.
Appreciate the beautiful aesthetics of Von Triers' work illustrating Depression, destruction, re-modernism, German Romanticism and of coarse Wagner.
A perfect art film.
Both Melancholia and Another Earth have similar concepts: a planet is heading towards the earth (who knows why!). I think Melancholia is a better film but both should be on your wish list if you have a passion for good films that are thought provoking. Lars von Trier should have won more awards for this (apparently he laid on some bad form jokes) but if he did then everyone would know about it and it wouldn't be as exotic.
