A beautiful movie about the end of the world.

Cannes Palme d'Or winning director, Lars von Trier, assembles a glittering Hollywood cast in his beautifully shot apocalyptic disaster movie.

As Justine (Kirsten Dunst) arrives for her wedding reception in her sister's mansion home, her big day resurfaces a battle against her own inner demons. Whilst at the same time Earth is threatened by an imminent collision with Planet Melancholia - whose presence becomes increasingly ominous as the film moves towards its truly spectacular finale.

Kirsten Dunst won the Best Actress award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for her performance, and stars alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt and Alexander Skarsgard.

  • Four Featurettes:
  • 'About Melancholia'
  • 'The Visual Style'
  • 'The Universe'
  • 'Melancholia Visual Effects'
  • Theatrical trailer

Truly a life-changing film. Thought provoking and intense. Everyone should take the time to watch this, atleast twice.

From the start the film has a strange feel about it (slow motion ).With hints of suspense ,but it soon passes with what i can only say is a slow story line if that's what you can call it .All set in a wedding with the main actress with mental problems,it drags on for over two hours with a so called dramatic ending ,more like thank god its over.With the list of A rated cast it was a shame it was not better.

 Overrated and too slow.....

From the reviews I have read I thought wow! lets give this film a go and make a night of it (Literally........)

If the beginning was anything to go off I should have switched it off straight away. Melancholia is very overrated and a good waste of 2 hours and 9 minutes of your life. The only good thing about it was Kirsten Dunst being the only actress that can actually act. I would not watch this again as it is a complete waste of time and effort pure and simple because it was way too slow and far to long and was dragged out when clearly it did not need too.

The value for this film should be reduced in a few months and I would not rush out to go and watch it again.

 Top film of 2011

Easily the best film I saw at the cinema in 2011. Beautiful imagery, extraordinary acting, and a deeply thought provoking, often disturbing narrative. An existentialist film which pulls at facets of human nature which all too often go untouched in film making.
