A new version of Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia

A new version of Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia

Why a person that apparently has everything would long for the end of the world? With this premise, the film Melancholia directed by the iconic Lars Von Trier shows us the world of Justine, that could be the life of everyone else nowadays. If Lars Von Triers wants to show just a portrait of a sick woman or represent the feelings of a whole generation, is something we have to discover.
