Some say that this is the most sensitive film by Lars von Trier (and who attribute it to a certain "maturity from the director"), a filmmaker who is famous for hype (which I love). Perhaps because it has been this strange feeling of contentment and discontent.
Each of the leading film is meticulously disguised, which leads to two paths: Lars wanted to communicate something through acts appar... read more

A visually impressive but self-important film in which discomfiting (even excruciatingly bitter) interactions, neuroses and apocalyptic anxiety are bathed in romanticised visuals and music. Drawing it would seem on Trier's own experience of depression and on Kubrick and Tarkovsky for prophetic depth, the film grates more than it enlightens, and feels like a misanthropist's revenge.

A good movie

“Honestly, it had been a while since I saw a movie directed by Lars von Trier (I think at least 5 years), so I was really glad to watch one of his more recent work, especially since it was very well reviewed. By now, I have seen about half of his movies and, even though I have the highest respect for his work and I think he is truly an artist, I have to confess, I’m not a huge fan and this movie was a perfect example explaining why. I mean, first of all, it was gorgeous to look at, probably the most beautiful movie made by von Trier. Then, it was a really intriguing take on the doomsday concept, something really different than what we got from ‘Armageddon’ or ‘Deep Impact’. Still, I can’t say I really loved the damned thing though. I mean, I did enjoy and relate to his vision o” read more

"16.12 Plääh, ei herättänyt tarpeeksi tunteita joten jäi sisällöltään todella köyhäksi elokuvaksi. Sisältää kuitenkin ihan hienot roolisuoritukset, visuaalisen ilmeen ja musiikit joten kyllähän tämän silti katselee ihan OK fiiliksillä loppuun."

“Melancholia is a Psychological movie about the end of the world. Melancholia is the name of a blue planet that is on the course of near miss to the earth a calculated by scientists.

The movie in the background of this collision story described the tales of two sisters Justine & Claire, how their lives are affected by the event.

The movie pace is quite low and action & fast pace loving movie viewers may get bored with the story, literally the Part one of the movie that is the about the marriage ceremony of Justine is quite draging, however the second part that is about Claire, is gripping being the scenario of possible collision of Melancholia unfolded and ended with the collision and subsequent end of world.” read more
