Melancholia

Melancholia – 2011

Lars von Trier’s unofficially designated  “Depression Trilogy” began with 2009’s Antichrist followed by Melancholia in 2011 and Nymphomaniac in 2013.

Melancholia begins with the end of the world.  It’s not a special effects laden action movie, it’s the story of two sisters and their contentious relationship as they face the reality of Melancholia.  I highly recommend.  

The soundtrack music is from Richard Wagner’s opera  Tristan und Isolde (1857–59).
