Another film by Lars von Trier after the famous, provocative "Antichrist". This time the author of "Breaking the Waves" and "Dancing in the Darkness" wants to make a very personal, psychological catastrophe and a beautiful film about the end of the world. The main characters of "Melancholy" are two sisters played by Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The younger one is just getting married when it turns out that another planet is approaching the Earth dangerously, threatening the end of the world. The future husband will be played by Alexander Skarsgård, his witness Stellan Skarsgård (actually Alexander's father), and John Hurt will play the father of the sisters. Charlotte Rampling, Kiefer Sutherland and Udo Kier will also appear in the film.
