Melancholia

€8 / €6 / 
Melancholia
Dir. Lars Von Trier. 136 minutes, Denmark/ Sweden/France/Germany, 2011

Sun. Nov. 20 at 3pm
Wed. Nov. 23 at 8pm

Lars Von Trier opens his film with an iconic close-up of Kirsten Dunst, with lashing rain, clashing planets and Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. Meanings and connections fall into place from then on, as an obviously troubled Dunst attends a plush wedding hosted by her filthy rich family. Von Trier conveys to perfection the woozy dislocation experienced by those gripped by the black dog of melancholy, adding strong performances against a Wagnerian score with painterly effects – he has created a lush, baroque film.
