There are some movies you just never figure out. For me, this is one of them. I kinda knew what I was getting into because I have seen other Lars von Trier movies (Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, etc).

You can follow along till about half way and then it starts getting to be WTF IS GOING ON!?!?!?!

dead baby

Basically, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe are getting it on and their kid falls and dies (see picture above). She ends up in the hospital and all crazy now. They go to the woods to have her face her fears (which was the woods, I guess) and then I’m not too sure what happens. I begun reading the IMDB boards on this movie and no one really knows. Mutilated genitals for the most part. Very artsy, slow motion, classical music, and plenty of sex. It’s kinda of a slow moving film, so be prepared.

There’s so much discussion on the symbolism in the film, I won’t even get into it here. The movie is worth a watch if you’ve got the time and patience for art house films (I am one of the few that do). You’ll definitely hit up IMDB to do some reading once you’ve seen it, and I’d suggest you wait till after otherwise you’ll just be more confused.

    Have you heard of Possession? I guess there are a lot of similarities with the symbolism and it was on the video nasties list.

    I have seen the one with Sam Neil ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082933/ ), but I guess there are a couple newer ones but very different plotlines. I might find the others to watch now.

    The one with Sam Neil was good though!
