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.

"Watched Dec.2nd Didn't do much for me. Kirsten Dunst gives a very strong performance but as a whole I wasn't very impressed with the film. Some beautiful images but I felt it lacked atmosphere."

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (282 movies items)

"20.11.2014 A very depressing and mostly boring movie. Don't watch it if you are suicidal! Nevertheless I liked the final scene (visually and acoustically). This movie could be much better if it wouldn't be so overly depressive and slow. My rating: 6,0"
