Melancholia is a stunning, psychological disaster movie from controversial Danish director Lars von Trier. Justine (Kirsten Dunst) and Michael (Alexander Skarsgård) are celebrating their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of her sister (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law (Kiefer Sutherland). The wedding is a diaster, family tensions make it a fractious affair as tensions mount and relationships fray. Meanwhile, the planet, Melancholia, is on a collision course with Earth…
Controversial Danish director, Lars von Trier, delivers a deeply personal, stunningly beautiful apocalyptic vision of the end of the world with Wagerian bursts that lingers in the mind long after the credits have rolled.
What the critics say about Melancholia:
“The most composed and beautiful and conspicuously adult film of [von Trier’s] career.” Salon
“It is a lighter Von Trier, a lovely Von Trier, a seriously romantic Von Trier that emerges from “Melancholia,” and I quite hope he stays around.” Los Angeles Times
” Melancholia is a potent beauty of a film, and Kirsten Dunst gives an incomparable performance.” Rolling stone
” If I were choosing a director to make a film about the end of the world, von Trier the gloomy Dane might be my first choice.” Roger Ebert
