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.

“While Melancholia is not a perfect film and I can totally understand the polarisation, I found myself very much impressed by it. Some of the dialogue is rather awkward, one or two of the characters sketchy and there are a few ideas that are were introduced and broached but could have been explored more. The pros outweigh the cons though, because it is a ravishing film to look at. The settings are breathtaking, and while the cinematography has a technique that is not going to be everybody's cup of tea Melancholia was an example of its utilisation being effective and somewhat necessary. The music is likewise amazing, Wagner's Tristan and Isolde is one of my favourite pieces and was in sync with the visuals perfectly, very like a symphony on film. The story, while slowly paced, has emotional ” read more

"Larssin poika yrittää olla hetkisen, humaani? Ei toki. Kyllä tämänkin juuttien provomestarin kädenjäljeksi nopeasti tunnistaa. Tehokeinot tällä kertaa vain huomattavasti hienovaraisemmat. Sinänsä mukavaa vaihtelua. Masennuksen kuvaus ja etenkin selittelemättömyys pelkkää plussaa. Lisää pojoja katselukokemukseen vielä rivitaloasuntoon loihditussa surround-äänihässäkässä. Hyvin pörisi."

" Notes: Even though I have the highest respect for Lars von Trier's 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, 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’.
