Two sisters find their already strained relationship challenged as a mysterious new planet threatens to collide with the earth.
Editor's Note
Lars Von Trier's MELANCHOLIA, a meditation on depression and the end of the world, stars Kirsten Dunst as an emotionally troubled newlywed named Justine, whose sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) throws her a lavish wedding party. While her lack of emotional stability begins to take a toll on Justine's new marriage as well as the party -- and old wounds are exposed -- Claire's wealthy husband John (Kiefer Sutherland) also knows a great deal about a planet that is on a possible collision course with Earth, further muddying the waters. The second half of the movie focuses on Claire, who ends up taking her sister in after the marriage collapses, and also begins to fear that John is hiding apocalyptically bad news. John Hurt and Charlotte Rampling co-star. MELANCHOLIA screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Expert Review Melancholia - DVD Review DVD Reviews
Published on: 3/13/2012 5:00 AM
Melancholia, the latest provocation from the not-so-socially-gifted Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier, is an immense motion picture. Or, perhaps, a picture of immensity would be just an appropriate descriptor, as the film is as much a work of staggering emotional lacerations, coming one after the other, as it is a document of tremendous directorial agenda. What begins as a volcanic wedding reception on an estate that seems to span the length of a small continent ends with nothing less than the final great collision of Earth and the titular alien planet, and the end of life as we know the full review

Professional Reviews

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "The beautifully shot banquet is full of scratchy family tensions and acidic asides..." 10/01/2011

Sight and Sound
"[T]he climactic cosmic collision delivers real bang for the bucks..." 10/01/2011

4 stars out of 5 -- "The two actresses excel, while von Trier's use of Wagner on the soundtrack gives the film gravitas and unlikely majesty." 10/05/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"The filmmaker blends the grand romanticism of Wagnerian music -- specifically the famous prelude from TRISTAN UND ISOLDE -- with swooning dreamscape cinematography that magically melts sight and sound into one." -- Grade: A 10/28/2011

Wall Street Journal
"[H]auntingly beautiful....An impending apocalypse is evoked with an extraordinary mixture of gravity and grave playfulness." 11/11/2011

"MELANCHOLIA is gorgeous to look at, deeply moody and atmospheric, and it's always in on its own grim little joke." 11/10/2011

Los Angeles Times
"Its apocalyptic vision is encouraging in its hopelessness; its star, Kirsten Dunst, luminous in her anguish and devastation." 11/11/2011

New York Times
"Lars von Trier offers his own, highly personal version of apocalypse: a celestial collision rendered in surprisingly lovely digital effects and accompanied by mighty blasts of Wagner." 11/11/2011

Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "A masterwork of grandeur, millennial angst and high romantic style, MELANCHOLIA takes themes that have marked the best films of 2011 and spins them into a blast of cosmic sparkle dust." 11/11/2011

Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] marathon of beauty, sorrow and bone crushing futility..." 01/03/2012
