Melancholia | 2011 | Director: Lars von Trier | Site | IMDB
Melancholia is a planet newly entered into Earth’s orbit, threatening to collide and destroy it. More so it is the story of two sisters and their strained relationship.  Melancholia is my choice for best film of 2011. Beautiful, dark, romantic and perfect really… It would be hard to pick a more cinematically beautiful film. The first few minutes are the most beautiful and moving in any film I have seen in recent years. The score is matched with precision. It is beautiful, creepy and emotional.

This movie starts out with such a happy moment in many people’s lives and reflects it as intolerable sad. The disintegration of the two amazing female characters draws you in. Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg are magnificent. The cinematography is always stunning in Lars Von Trier’s films, but this movie is exceptional. I highly recommend this movie; especially not being a huge Kristen Dunst fan I was surprised.
